ANTICIPATION~by Rajendra Padhi




Every moment
There is a text in my mind
Comes and stands in anticipation
Of storms, lightning and thunder,
I sit in my garden
Here I have planted a tree.

My hope of every day
sometimes hopeless
when cattle or crow play mischief
its lustrous rise in world’s heart
the wind too roars causing fear
I run to see
whether it is eaten or fallen
Distracted I am curious to find
its blooming youth
Bearing fruits and flowers.

The mind is a dark continent
I slide each day endlessly
Sit meditating like a saint to see
its sacred rising under sun.

I avoid the truth
Things created are destroyed,
I set the plant if it is leaning
Water it every morning
Clean the leaves to shine green.

My heart and hands
stretched out for its growth
I am the primeval lover to find
me in its fruits and flowers
of course I don’t know
How the years will pass by!
