The Emptiness Of Self - Poem by indira babbellapati

The night looked
A huge ghost
Walking backwards

The wind blowing
From the ancient banyan
On the village outskirts
Hooted like a giant owl

The sea looked muddy
And the rivers felt dry
Thoughts were scattered
By the banyan wind
Like sand granules at storm

In the corridors
Well lighted, peopled,
Perfumed n jewelled
Is heard a shriek of emptiness that
I tried to muffle in vain!

    A lot is left to imaginary and feel, very hard to find in most poems these days, a really nice poem. (Report) Reply

    Emptiness of self is a surreal image as described. The shriek's echoes seem unending. (Report) Reply
