A Rendezvous With Repentance Poem by Sarvesh Kulkarni

A Rendezvous With Repentance

Rating: 5.0

The night
Spilled a thousand scars,
Bathed in its moonlight
Of indifferent repentance.

Wept its heart out
In the broken song
Of the fluttering night-crickets.

Poured out its grand sorrow
In the wisdom-sparks of its stars.
Flaunted its agony
In the flamboyance of the ocean.

It had its moment of glory,
A rendezvous with repentance…
When I was fast asleep
In a dreamless sleep.

And now,
As I wake up,
Why do I feel
That the morning light today
Is peeping stealthily,
Like the subtle silence
Of a half-hearted poem
Aware of its beauty,
But Unaware of its own delight.
Aware of its grandeur,
But unaware of its painful roots….?

First four lines are terrific with a metaphor. The 'night' crawls here with its subtle mind enveloped with passion...the concept is very much flowing without pause.10+
