The Burning Bird Drops - Poem by Joy Goswami

Sizzling sound in the water
My sleep broken
A billion years of sleep

Over whose head
The hole of the sky, the iron cloud, and
Under that, circling, the silence of sinking earth

[Translated from 'Jwolte jwolte paakhi poDchhe' ( Bengali) by Poet himself]
