Touching The Blues... - Poem by Raj Thampi

To touch the blues of my lost skies
My mind is leaping like a dead frog
Distances which I can’t reach
Stays there with an ironic smile-deep rooted

A piece of dream is still exciting
Within its lost colors
A piece of cloud is still exciting
Within its lost rains

My shadow is parting from me
As if it was never mine
A foot I let ahead
Is taking me two feet backwards

My heart is still leaping ahead
To touch the blues of my lost skies
Green is spreading in front of my eyes
Making me blind to see other

Green of my rain is lost somewhere
As the fading note of another rain song
My rain is leaping ahead
To touch the blues of my lost skies
