As the flesh plumed

As the flesh plumed,
A pinkish tender,
The day blushed
Into crimson red
The eyes looked yonder

Lost in the resonant silence,
Ears didn’t heed,
As hungry voices echoed
Like those forgotten church bells
Wind blew deep in the night

Silence stretched taut,
Words waiting to come out,

Discarded, like those pages,

Lying in the attic
Lips were sealed tight

Darkened days waited,
In corridors of time,

Where history reckons

Waited all this while….
Awaits till,

The elusive humanity dawns

  5. superb verse: one which is very organised structurally, has a natural rhythm (which by now I expect in your verses) but still not lose out on simplicity or meaning.

    “silence stretched taut” – you have great facility with language use but to use such simple stretches of words so powerfully! hats off:-)

    “Darkened days waited,

    Awaits till,
    The elusive humanity dawns” – my favourite lines. There is a deeper than normal “mystic” about your verses and I must admit sometimes the meanings are beyond my intellectual capacity to grasp. Obviously, nobody can perfectly ever mimic the poet(es)(‘)s’ thought process to unearth meaning… but yeah sometimes your poetry affords intellectual challenge which i like

  6. I got that (I was in Bombay when 26/11 happened) but I was alluding to the inner landscape of the poetry itself… and as I said it has to do with my comprehending capacities than the verse itself!
