(HAPPY WORLD POETRY DAY TO ALL)~by Saroj K Padhi


 

 

(HAPPY WORLD POETRY DAY TO ALL)

Image may contain: bird

Is the pathetic hum of a blinded bee 
inside the dark womb of an oozing flower;
the silent sigh of sparrow on the edge extinction,
the last drop of hope on the brows of a soldier
caught inside a trench surrounded by burning mortar;
the hunger at the beak of a noon bird
skimming the poor trickle of a dying river;
the expectations glowing on the lips of a morning sky
when the Sun buoys up to the surface of sea water;
the drops of tear in the eyes of an agonized lover;
the cry of a foetus destroyed by her mother;
on lips of a self-realized monk, a silent peace-prayer;
the drizzle of dew from Nature’s bowers
that lovingly moistens every leaf and flower;
the loneliness sitting on the lids of a widow
whose young son got martyred in a recent war;
poetry is the voice of truth in the dungeon of lies,
invincible instinct for life under shadow of pervasive death
a cry against injustice, a sentient breath, a relentless prayer…
