Contemporary Verse.



I fell asleep

In middle of the night

Or perhaps it was a day

Feigning of the darkness.


There was a beggar

At my tapped door

Begging for a silver spoon

Or perhaps for a pot of gold.


A limpid long life

Like flow of a river

Descending into the dust

Perhaps in harassed fever.


If I was asleep

Who was the other I?

Cajoling, decreeing

Perhaps a child with a dagger

Or a painted being in swagger.


Days come and go

But the sun without a race

Soulful of its luminosity

In a jocund dark space.


The End
