Silence

 

 

Silence is a symphony of bare homes

That flourishes in a rhythm of longing

Where dust of space piles on clocks

On books & pens & drawing curtains

 

On mirror which myths the faces of smiles

Of pain, of rapture, of calm, of delight

All await to hear a sound

A whisper, a talk or laugh resounds

 

An empty chaos

Where, absence floats

The same one that longs to embrace,

The silhouettes of its lost frames

 

Such silence perturbs through lively tenors

A whirring of wings

Or, crackling leaves

Chirping crickets

Or, humming bees. . .

 

Gracious visitors of such homes

Who promise to wait for life

A dweller to play music of soulful vibe.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

My Cacophonous Quests

 

 

 

To find oneself in a cacophony

Or lost fragments of a former self

Is to wander in a jungle of foliage leaves

A dense one maybe. . .

 

I find here pieces of me

Fragile and tender they may be

I may hear echoes of laughter

Or, glint of hope in trails of eyes

 

I sense the frailty of mortal life

In hollow mouths and wry smiles

And find some naivety of mine

In careless squabbles of restless minds. . .

 

I decipher the meaning of existence

In jostling bodies, wriggling for space

Anonymous am I

Anonymous are they

Is that what it resembles?

 

We both are figures unknown to you

An element of absurd, or profound maybe?

I can’t say

Perhaps, that too I shall seek

While finding myself in a cacophony.
