A Late Evening !



A late evening ! I am alone
yet not wholly so
A crowd has feeling too
Enough to shift a little 
and let me sit 
on a teeny edge 
to rest my aching legs awhile.

I wonder afterwards.....
What if  I faint 
from sheer exhaustion 
They might pick me up 
What if I puke 
since I am not feeling well 
Will they....will they....?

The late evening is not black 
It is beautiful
Blue sky stretching clouds 
colored golden-milk 
Between the outstretched arm of 
trees turned black and solid 
before the day.

Alone,but not lonely 
I taste the first taste 
of my honesty
and my strength.
Home I do not think of,
But of destinations,desires,aims.

The late evening distills my wishes 
The scum,the slag dissolved....
all in my tiredness ....
and there remains 
precious little
Only the truth,existence and 
the desire to create.

Still ! I Wait


On the edge of your pale lips
A word has fluttered
Like a butterfly of many colors 
and many wings 
weeping silently on a fading flower.

Your brows creased in concentration 
you have drawn upon
all your reserves of energy 
to utter a single word of solace 
you can't bear to see me cry 
But between you,me and the walls 

We all know
It's a year since you spoke.
Oh! this tomb of shrouded silence 
and filtered light.

We have curtained every sunset
off your window
you live in perpetual sunrise
Yet,I can see in your eyes
that you know well this deceit
and also how to forgive it

If I could, I would smoothen
the furrows of pain off your face
walk you to the sunlight
arm in arm
create a world of our own
But the flutter of your eyelashes say
It's not to be
It's not to be

So I hold your hand
Silent in grief
and wait for a new dawn
while the sun sits somewhere out there
behind your curtained windows.

A Smile !


Let me accept the wounds of thorns
And merely touch a rose for 
it has a smile
Let me not possess it !

A smile has acquired a lot
It has made your friend say hello 
It has brought your dearest 
to the nearest.

It has greeted the stranger into you
Give the child,an affectionate smile 
Respect the superior 
with a respected smile. 

And kill the enemy with a smile 
All love letters of a friend
Are not worth one of her smiles
If the fire smiles, it lights a candle
And if it laughs, it is a disaster.
