The old man

The old man
on the seashore 
the depth of life.

The sea-gulls
Above, pouncing down
On the tit-bits like
ever- famished street
urchins rummaging
inside the garbage tins.

And the dashing
Cadillacs and Yamahas
by the score
And people
In Levi’s and halters,
passing never
a glance
no time.

The old man
Walks back towards his
rented room,
a rented life
faint ears,straining
feeble force forcing,
least they miss
the welcome nock from
the endless horizon?

From the horizon
the albatross spans
its wings across
the dying sun.

Momently darkness
On the shores
Of life
before the twilight
stars predict
a fresh sunny
dawn of gloom.

  3. क्षण भर अंधेरे
    किनारे पर
    जीवन की
    गोधूलि पहले
    सितारों की भविष्यवाणी
    एक ताजा सनी
    उदासी की सुबह.
    great i like it
