WINTER WHISPERS ~by Jyotirmaya Thakur




Image may contain: one or more people and indoor

On a cold serene winter night,
In silence stars shining light,
Clear dreams of sky so bright,
Warmth of sun out of sight.

Privileged rich cosy in bed,
Wrapped in satin or velvet,
Abandoned senile heavy load,
Lying in corners of the roads.

Whispers of dry twigs unfold,
Playing havoc on naked toes,
Frostbite fingers of poor and old,
Peep out trembling in biting cold.

Magical music in metro sounds,
Unemployed heartstrings proud,
Commuters of train homebound,
On wistful looks throw a frown.

Life is hard and dark in corners,
Winter adds pale encounters,
Old clothes gather dust in closets,
Untimely twirls of coal dust burners.

Mystic world of winter whispers,
Angel wings cover poverty fingers,
Softly enter soulful harbingers,
Gently dawn on carol singers.
