ACHING BELLS~by Saroj Padhi




The wind driven chimes sing of the desires tumbling
in the heart of the tree banged by the storm from Java sea
wherein the debris of the Air Asia Aircraft lies drowning
wails of passengers right from encounter with storm clouds
till being engraved under high waves of the tragic waters.

Who knows what pangs shrilled across the waters
as lives dropped as pebbles into the womb of tides
that engulfed the crash-fire with burnt out ashes of their dreams
who died without being able to raise alarm thro’ their SOS screams !

Tonight the bells echo the cry of those travelers in air
For whom the tree’s heart is on fire
pining to see those sweet smiles back in the morning sun
that have passed unnoticed into currents of a tragic dawn.
