Did You Hear It Too? - Poem by Mohan Rana
All night long your restlessness
walked the wet streets of Lisbon,
A silent moan
woke me at daybreak.
was singing in the dawn:
something had woken it up too.
All night long your restlessness,
unable to sleep, walked and peered
with eyes closed
A sound broke in the ocean's sigh
amidst the rising waves.
Turning over in the sheets' folds,
did you hear the bird too?
