Silent Viewers - Poem by Chandan Dey

The night was on the horizon.

My friend and I were walking silent
on a complex field
covered with a strange white fog;

on one side,
we heard city's clatter
saw the glare of light;

on the other,
we saw the darkest houses of the specters
and felt their soundless movement.

There a cyclic clock giving
Time on timeless…

Topic(s) of this poem: protest, social injustice, time, timeless

    In one hand there is glare of light where as in other hand there is darkest of houses of specters. Here we can view the social justice or injustice silently. A brilliant poem shared startlingly.10 (Report)Reply

    Tony, you’ve done a great work. You know protest is the language of our consciousness. Your poem expresses that not only impressively but effectively too!
