Void - Poem by Savita Tyagi

Through the grey walls and white sheets
Void spreads out
It moves in open circling the snow covered mountain peaks
Settles upon the shadowy darkness of cedar and pine
In quiet it moves among creatures of night and beasts of forest
With thoughts and sensations buried deep
Mind resembles like a stretch of parched land
When void takes hold of consciousness.

*************************** **********************

The vast blue space
So pleasant to look at
In its void hang the sun and moon
In the darkest hour of night
Stars play upon its bosom
In its emptiness it embraces thunder and lightning
And gives clouds space to float around
The void in my heart appears like a faded tapestry
In the fragile weft of memory
I search for your image.

    The word Void is commonly given a negative connotation. But you have presented another meaning too. Void as in unmanifest. Superb poem. (Report) Reply
