Kranthi Pothineni


A Candle in Wind


Storm is at the bay
Light is going away
Darkness filled in way
Heart is empty to pay
The last lit of its ray

In its pursuit of gay
Year passed like day
With no words to say
Closed eyes to pray
For the smell of clay

Rain is going to spray
To wet time in gray
Sure for long to stay
With nothing left to slay
Music of pathos on play

There will be no hay
Nor someone’s prey
Only memories of may
And the words of nay
To be part of the lay

Wind left me to stray
With a empty tray
But light said ay
Don’t ever get dismay
Life is not just today

Poem of the Day

poet Wilfred Owen

All sounds have been as music to my listening:
Pacific lamentations of slow bells,
The crunch of boots on blue snow rosy-glistening,
Shuffle of autumn leaves; and all farewells:
