In The Light Of Birds

Rating: 4.3

In the light of birds the lunatic wakes from uncountable sleeps
His burning electric wires begin to glow
Birds sing in every forest of flesh and blood
The lunatic's fingers turn into strings in the outer silence

The darkness of half-asleep awareness roars through
The lunatic's widening arteries, it's another kind of
Waking-- and even total sleep is a frightening fire
It's compelled to burst out even while being awake.

The lunatic sees through his sun-paraphrasing eyes

The lunatic sees through his sun-paraphrasing eyes That creates circles centred outside him And unaccountable sleep awakens lightnings To sing a vast lullaby in flesh and blood... these are really very poetic lines.. thank u. dear poet. tony

The narrative emerges from the man's eternal relationship with nature and its bounties. 'Lunatic' comes out as a man who loves the atmosphere created by the spell-binding beauty created by the presence of moon and its light after dark. Fortunate to have read Dilip Chitre's poem. Birds sing in every forest of flesh and blood The lunatic sees.....unaccountable sleep awakens lightnings To sing a vast lullaby in flesh and blood.
