Silvi Tripathy

(Sonepur, ODISHA

A Seed


Without any experience
Without any feelings
Far away from enjoyment
Far away from smile
How can be a life exist
Even without any heartbeat.

In between a hard covering
Silent and lonely
Years and years together
How can be a life exist
But it's a seed with seed coat
Even without any heartbeat.

Wouldn't it be great
Wouldn't it touch the sky
But you have to water it once
You have to care it once
Before it flower and
Before you have a
Glance of fragrance.

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:
