Labyrinth - Poem by indira babbellapati

the uneven rhythm of silence
as night pulls the living into
its patchy blanket falls heavy
on the heart’s ears…

the sound of sound sleep
breathes heavier on the
jagged walls of the night
echoing on the abandoned skin

the abandoned echo fills
the precincts of the streets
the irregular rhythm throngs
the foot-paths of the night

once in a way a baton
proves its power
once in a way
blazing lights stop by…

in the dark silence
do they seek a brief respite
and shake off night’s embrace
to begin yet another day…

    The mind’s labyrinth well projected,
    On to the dark screen of night;
    Where the rhythm of silence whispered,
    Navigational instructions till daylight.

    was a little bit vague in the first two stanzas, but then the title is 'labyrinth'!
    wonderful poem,
    thank you ma'am.

    Enjoy this read. The rich imagery of the 'labyrinth' emphasizes your presence as a powerful creative artist and poet.
    Thanx for sharing. Funny thought.....I just submitted this poem: 'This Night Feels So Quiet ' on ph/ws.
