In Life's Continuum - Poem by Seema Chowdhury

The setting sun tints the sky amber
And tears moisten my eyes and heart
As I see the unfamiliar world passing me by
Showing the complex and messy loops
One following another and another and another

It's a moment in time when the mingled memories
Run and rerun rigidly in my mind over and over again
And I share them with silence and bond over them
Where narrow view of life shows confusing sorrow
And I try to position myself in life's continuum

Now, for me, it's a life that is going by too fast
And is forcing me to invent meanings of my own
Walking amid sober silence and crowded chaos
Where I am flowing like a spontaneous cascade
From one loop to another and another and another

Helplessly watching the runs and the reruns
Of life's episodes with moisten eyes and heavy heart
Staring at the amber sky of the setting sun
Anxiously trying to make sense of the things around
And finding my position on life's continuum......

***Dedicated to my beloved Mother, who is now suffering from Alzhimers***
