Other Promises - Poem by Ajit Das

The end of the day:
the still moment of hushed silence.

The sun sinks down the fringe
of the rain washed blue,
leaving the soaked green
in a liquid glow.

Another day rolls by
in the evening mist,
mutely reminding the relentless pull
towards the twilight.

When life was speeding, shoving
with a blind frenzy,
a heap of stakes relegated all else
to the periphery.

Now a dead weight squats on me,
yet my uncertain eyes try to hold
the quivering outlines
of another shore.

    I am thrilled to read this poem which captures rather beautifully the final moments of the day going 'towards the twilight' and 'a heap of stakes relegated all else to the periphery'. Thanks, Ajit. (Report) Reply
