Unknown World - Poem by Kiran Devarajan
I heard the call, when in bed,
I ran, with a heavy breath, outside,
To see the wonder unfold
My eyes were witnesses to these....
I heard the noise of nature,
I looked about in awe
To see the gray blanket,
Covering the sapphire heaven!
I gyrated with ecstasy
With an unheard passion consuming me,
Like that of an endless stream,
Filling a cavern of enigma! !
I ran about my abode
With my light, wild heart! !
I watched the luminous blossoms
And I came back to the balcony.
Spotted a lone fowl
Resting on a branch of a banyan,
It might be pondering where to go,
Where to hide from the rain
Or might it be wondering,
Where to look, where to gape!
For it was after all,
Surrounded by paradise itself!
I watched the trees, the blossoms,
I watched them marvelling
At a sight, lustrous as gold,
Unparallel to anything.
And when the gods nodded,
I watched the sky burst,
I watched it burst with gaiety,
Silvery showers enveloping everything!
I reached afar to get that sensation,
That feeling of myth and fancy,
That which every fay cherishes
When she travels about on the earth.
Words flew through my oral gate,
None could even materialize,
As I touched these blessed drops,
I flew with them to a distant world....! ! ! .
