SIGHING RIVER~by Saroj K Padhi

As the tint of the Sun’s last glow is erased
by the warm sighs of a lean Summer river,
the last legion of diurnal birds on their return
take last suck from her chest in soft quiver;

the tired breeze tries to soften its husky voice
in the clefts of ripples aching for a little rest,
in the folds of sands at the desolate banks
where inside dozing flowers, bees enjoy arrest;

sporadic sparks from smouldering heart of hills
reveal but lines of half-hidden trickles of tears
in cloudy corners of the weighty Sky’s wet eyes
when to the wind, the river whispers all her fears;

we lie as dreaming snails on her sinking floor
when trickles from sentient clouds fill sands’ pore.
