Renu Rakheja a.k.a Tranquil Ocean


The Full Moon was in the Lake
The Lake was in the Full Moon
The Water lilies wide awake
The stars swimming too, strewn

Biting chill was in the air
Rolling silence of the landscape
Shadows and shapes a pair
A small Shikara rapidly making an escape

The sound of the oars reverbrating
Cutting the stillness of the night
Two huddled figures cling
The moonlight endowing a clear sight

Piercing bullets come rushing in
The two men in a pool of blood, lifeless
A motorboat approaches with flying fins
Cutting a bunch of watercress

Commandoes jumping in still pumping
Into the bodies that are now just dead weight
Meanwhile a bunch of masked men fleeing
Out of their hiding, the two men just acting baits

Poem of the Day

poet John Clare

I love to see the old heath's withered brake
Mingle its crimpled leaves with furze and ling,
While the old heron from the lonely lake
Starts slow and flaps its melancholy wing,
