Desert Moon - Poem by Anirudh Induchudan Anirudh Induchudan
he came first
at the fixed place
before the fixed time
below the flowery tree
it was raining
it was their meeting after seven years
a letter from her awakened him
from busy business and family life
she wishes to pick up the colours
of their old love
he too wished, so he came
she came in a red shiffon saree
and a violet umbrella
she smiled with a pain in her eyes
am i late?
not at all
the colour of saree pains my eyes
i never pained your mind
both of them smiled
sat on flower laden stones and roots
a wall of silence stood between them
how is your wife
he looked at his wedding ring
his pride didnt allow to admit his love to her
she wanted to speak a lot
about her loneliness
about the voidness his absence created
about her lost life
but his looks evoked symapthy in her
he was not the one who once rejected his love and flew
for new pastures and life
he is weary, tired and old now
tears filled her eyes.
what has this love gave them?
some pain and some hopes?
or only hopes?
let me go, she said
you said nothing
then why did you call me
to see you, just to see you
she dissolved herself into darkness.he stood below the tree alone...
