Colours Of Distance - Poem by Sanjukta Nag

You are running faster
With your ears shut by deaf happiness.
Body penetrates
The translucent landscape of air,
Leaving red moisture of love poems behind.
I'm screaming your name
In a voice higher than white skyscrapers,
But your silhouette is getting smaller
Against the orange backdrop of a setting sun.
Now, I can reach your little image
Through the curved distance
Between my index finger and thumb.
Though at some point,
It will also dissolve over the horizon.
Then I'll put my eyes on a kaleidoscope
To envision your vividness through imagination.

    Running faster shut by deep happiness is very amazingly brought up closer with distances among colours. Through the curved distance between index finger and thumb the imagery of vividness is well painted with colours of words. Very wise and interesting poem shared definitely...10 (Report) Reply
