Worlds Word & Death At Childbirth Poem by Abhay Vignesh Liginlal

Worlds Word & Death At Childbirth

Rating: 5.0

You came silently in the dark with a lone lamp
While united we watch the stars in the sky
Beaming back and forth in the world’s eye
Like a mirror reflecting a mirror

These shadows which live on a watery surface
Are memories of that same light which fills the night sky
The same wind stirs the silence of trees as crickets chirp
Here and there where comrade lived on yonder shore

While silhouettes fade as the world sleeps in the darkness of time
A boatman waits to take you and me across the stream of death
To the other bank of life where the garb is shed
You and the self will fade on that yonder shore

Let these words take birth in the world of verse
As poets and men keeping reading them on yonder shore
Never again will we be strangers there
In that world in the womb of a dead world.

its dramatic representation creates a sense of solitude and if the root of entering the future is not clear to anybody, sense of death become obvious end of the story-telling. so, ultimately you have touched that oft-told catastrophe. after all you have tried to illustrate a shore beside infinity...carry on...

Thanks for inviting me to read your poem, which I liked very much. Images are rich and the subject is moving. Poets talking to us through time and after death is something worth writing about, specially when well done. Though your poem was totally different it reminded me of Brooke's Great Lover. I shall keep on reading you.
