An Ode For This Moment - Poem by Avik Datta Gupta

Blue eyes in the heavens
Gaze upon a seasonal leaf
That has turned the pages
From the seeds of time
Of an unfinished chapter.
The crimson sunshine
Illuminates the face
Of the stage we call our lives
Another day ushers
Speaking epochs of the unknown
Bleeding blue from the veins
The screaming light thickens
And drips by the shadows
Misted by diffused pains
Triggered thoughts that come and go
In a circular avalanche of words
Glittering sparkles reflect
From the turbulent stream of thoughts
Shining dust settle down
From depths beyond measure
Like a map without a scale
Lines can be spoken
Apart from being drawn
As we write our voices
A flower blooms in the desert
And time skips a beat
Just for the beauty of the moment.
