LAST LETTER~by Saroj K Padhi




Last letter from Spring was written in tears

of Koel soaked in red oozing from our heart

as we rolled on thorns of inexplicable aches

tuning our ears to broken syllables of lost love,

turning green grass into patches of brown reeds;

lips of flowers trembled in strange fear,

wind stood still, unable the sad sight to bear

leaves shed drops of reddish dew into stormy chest

of a night torn by a desire to be or not to be

as wisps of grey clouds covered face of the moon,

stars glimmered like conflicts in our minds

sighs simmered in fold of arms destined to part,

and the words of the last letter merged into dust

before turning into an echo in silent corner of the heart.
