Treasure Island

Bijay Kant Dubey


My Silence


My silence was the silence, silence of rocks,
My silence, it was the silence of the stones,
Rocks and stones,
Rocks, stones and trees;
Of the landscapes
Full of ups and downs.

I had not been silent,
Silent,
All silent,
They made me, turned me to
And went I silent,
Silencing myself.

My silence was the silence
Forced to take on,
My silence was the silence
Of elegies and obituaries
And I had been busy writing with them
And I confided in.

After the all commotion,
Ruffle and rustle,
Saw I silence,
All quiet and silently
Prevailing upon.

I had been silent,
Silent for them,
My words snatched
And made silent
And I found myself dumbfounded and awe-struck.

Breaking my silence,
I want to say,
All about my experiences and feelings
Before I go away,
Go away from here.

I do not know it
Why did I like it,
Why did I dislike,
Silence was all that I needed
And it silenced me too?

Poem of the Day

I AM not One who much or oft delight
To season my fireside with personal talk.--
Of friends, who live within an easy walk,
Or neighbours, daily, weekly, in my sight:
