Sigh~by Saroj Padhi




One sigh from the corner
Of your eye
At the fall of brow
Though slow ,
Is potent enough to break
An entire civilization,
And the Konark of my imagination–

That crumbles into slabs of loneliness
On dried grass of Summer
Away from the joys of waves
In sea of your eyes’ morning glitter
Where birds of my love flutter
With their endless chatter!

Was this a sigh of
Your inadvertent response
To the shadow of my evening
Or a reaction to my new birth in the offing ?—

I don’t know,
But I find myself poised now
Into an eternal wait,
For these occasional sighs
In fall of eyes
Thro’ my love to awake soon
To land of our new boon;
Not to forebode doom
But to transform them into new songs
of Love in vernal bloom.
