Treasure Island

Kesav Venkat Easwaran

(June 5th / Palghat- Kerala- India)

*Window (Free Verse)


The raindrops started leaving the eves-line
A window opened on the facing line

I found them all alone inside four walls
The breeze carried to me their words- no brawls

Did he ask her nobody loved him why?
Did she keep silent? Few moments passed by

(I saw a lightning splash in the sky)

Did he repeat, on this earth so, why?
Did I find her look deep into his eyes?

(I heard a thunder roll down the sky)

Did she ask him if he recognized a heart?
Did I find his eyes pierce her heart apart?

(I heard a hooligan wind pass by)

The rain suddenly started pouring high
The window and the words got liquefied

I switched off the screen
Locked the window inside
To retain the impact
Of the storm behind

    I read this poem again and I can't stop my remark; isn't it the least strange if not a bit scary when we can feel the nature more than alive, but clearly talking to us? ! It is not the fact that the nature talks scary but the fact that we understand it. (Report) Reply
