Pravat Kumar Padhy, IN






tried to search the link
between life and death
and the debate remained perennial
meaning rebirth as the recycled faith



whirling wind
flow of unscheduled and unkind.
leaves scattered
with no shelter and mercy
detaching from the living trees



in dense majority
clouds hang over the ocean
in my dream
I feel mingling with the sea
the softness of the rain



vast ocean—
the cosmic relationship with space
the wave regresses back
I become conscious
of the present



my screams—
in the garden of loneliness
talk to wind
I await on the pages of remembrance
for the wind to reply my voice



near the shore
waves with musical tone
come to shore
smilingly it returns back
changing its face
