Neela Nath


On The First Day...


you sent me a mail,
it just came to me flying
with a new foliage
in a full-grown tree.
Your spirit was like
a bird, never ever
who doesn't want
to be in cage!
In my life you opened
a new page...
New, new, new
novelty in every
letter and word
pushed me outside
though I was homeward.
In lone desolate place
where sky and sea
embraced each other
and no line could divide
them and there remained
blue, blue and blue,
endless, line-less
profound and very near
to God almighty.
You played a tune
melodious, mesmerizing
and far from monotony.
I didn't know what's day,
what's night, dawn dusk
morning and evening....
You pasted you on my
bark as everlasting leaf.
Leaf, leaf, leaf
are you really a thief
who had stolen my mind
and heart and kept in a
cupboard? Locking it with
a monstrous lock did you
lose the key?
Or just threw it into sea?

    A very spellbinding poem Hari. Reminds me of Autumn with it's leaves
    falling every which way on the ground but it still creates a beautiful scenery
    however it fell by some unknown guest. A poem of mystical meaning. (Report) Reply
