Forgiven - Poem by Sanjukta Nag

Under the tree of forgiveness
We sat for hours
Cross-legged, cross minded,
Our short-lived breaths started colliding
With the wings of wind.
The bark I leaned against seemed rough
As you have pampered my skin
Since time immemorial.
Cruelty of silence also proved unbearable
Until you broke it into pieces with
Your words of affection.
And we found reciprocity as
A common page in our books of life.
For true love always knows how to excuse
The flaws of innocent hearts.

    Tree gives the teaching of forgiveness. This is a very nice quality. Cruelty of silence does not mean anything in front of forgiveness. Forgiveness is great imagery here. Fantastic sharing. Nice poem.10 (Report) Reply
