Contrast - Poem by Sanjukta Nag

The innocence of your smile
Is quite strong for defeating any
Heavenly shadow,
Embarrasses the whiteness of
Moon all night long.

But when you clench a fist,
The light between your fingers
Crumbles like withered leaf of winter,
And darkness of experience
Takes birth inside.
