Solitude - Poem by yamini peethambaran

Silence, silence in passages
I waited for a knock
A humming, a whisper..
All in vain, my beats were there alone.

How I wished for a smile
A wave at my window pane
A touch of love
A bouquet
That drenched in hope.

Envying eyes at neighborhood,
I stared the mirth of hares
The swaying heads of creepers
All in love! Who’s there?

Silence, silence in passages
Holed soul in dismay
I stared as life rolled on
On the leaning staff my mate for years…
