As I Went …

Something

Like a static object

I cannot freeze

 

Between wind and time

I am a wandering person

Even the sky fails to cover me

 

On this earth

Green signatures

How long it’s been since I’ve seen

 

Whichever way I look, it’s a desert

As far as I can see, nothing

 

All the symbols

Have lost

All the metaphors

Fell off

 

 Poetry

Just one dried leaf

 

Heart dried up

Well of sad worry

I am digging

 

Thirst is not quenched

Distance doesn’t lessen

 

In diverging pathways

Don’t ask where I’m going

 

Someway

One route

Let my foot fall

Only in my step

Let the sky be seen.

  1. leaving out “sad worry” rest of the poem is good and arousing empathy in the readers too!
