Pearl - Poem by Rajkumar Mukherjee


open window brings wind
wind carries sound
sound breaks in waves

I open my eyelids blue sky
sky meets the sea
the casuarina trees
whisper the untold story
in the moonlit night

the wave breaks
the sand houses built by children
break into pieces by the storm

deep inside me words
dreams bloom and break
alone in the subconscious mind

crowd gathers on the beach
in search of pearls
I stay afar alone in the wilderness

waves after waves break in my heart
and transform me
into a small pearl
when I never know
Rajkumar - Seychelles
