Sunset Years - Poem by ATUL CHANDRA SARKAR

Sunsets and sunset years,
Have one thing in common:
The hand of God:
Sculpting successive forms,
Shapes of things to be,
Or not to be?
Smooth transition of colors,
Shades and hues,
Aromas, tangs, whiffs,
Emetic stench,
Meetings and partings,
Petals and pricks,
Pleasures and pains,
Joys and sorrows,
Tears and smiles,
Who shall see:
Shadows of petals,
Who shall see:
Petals of shadows;
Who shall see:
Sun-set in the sun-rise,
Who shall see;
Sun-rise in the sun-set;
Stages that shall come,
A pause,
A stop,
A halt,
A junction,
A crossroad,
A destination,
The end of a beginning,
The beginning of an end!
