WHEN I PLAY WITH ME~by Rajendra Padhi




The sun sets behind the lake
A stream of feelings flows in darkness
Simple as grass in nightly rain
Trembling with wind in elegiac notes
I reach to leafy lips of trees in garden
When silence says nothing,
I hear the voice of time without words
But swings my heart in feelings.

I contained multitudes in the day
I have loved them in every ways,
I have own them allowing them to win me
I have missed them to search for me
I have forgotten them to remember
When left lonely by the crowd.

Leaving behind me wealth and power
I gather them in shadowy night
When busy clouds depart with rain
I play with my feelings of memory
Like the moon over the palm trees
Their lovely faces in lanes and streets
Shrouding me here in my solitude.
