SILENCE~by Saroj K Padhi




Image may contain: sky, water, outdoor and nature

There is a silence in my soul
that seeks to catch eternity,
like a baby clutching its mother,
for a brief walk on the timeless shore
beyond the reach of waves’ grating roar
that echoes the voice of our grieving times,
groans of species under threat of extinction,
moans of farmers neck-deep in loan,
and cries of innocents
shot by unidentified gun;

I want to go inside
to the lawn
where the moon walks on soft grass
like a bride walking up to the altar
with stars of expectations
twinkling on her blushful cheeks
immortalizing a moments of union.

I want to sink deeper
into the abyss where I can lie
like a pebble tossed by currents of water
in eternal wait for that sweet oblivion.
