Confession

Of memories leaden with confessions and they do not fade away easily Walking into that paleness revives some of the persistent emotions as if they reappear with the images rekindled by some magical spark in the mind Too late at night and there’s no scope to walk away from them; too much of an ordeal  Probably, the gates would be locked and house immersed in … Continue reading Confession

Studied Silence

Today it is a studied silence, not really sure of the sulking appearance at twilight hours Melancholy decided to be an accomplice to stir the already palpable restlessness Thoughts are like wolves loping on unsuspecting predators anticipating a feast Nature’s mechanisms seem to have rusted and thoughts have become obstinate cogs A workman has journeyed through the troubles and stumbled on the way home Here, … Continue reading Studied Silence

Spellbinding

In the night not everyone sleeps Some looking for their dreams in the night skies Also, speaking to the silent world is satisfying When the drama unfolds beyond worldly hours Austere times persuade the soul to be awake Enchanted forests, midnight landscapes Mystical lights compose beautiful lyrics Eulogizing the night in a heavenly language Since the vespertine hours, all are invited As spaces feel drowsy … Continue reading Spellbinding

Solemn Hour

Solemn landscapes offer no welcome to the wind Feels like a vagabond has trespassed at this hour of dusk Those preparing to go home are collecting their thoughts Trudging along with heavy hearts of unfulfilled dreams Journeying straight paths feel like the steepest climb   Echoes sigh of boredom; indifference to all the sayings Stories are being noted, but misty eyes blur the sentences At this … Continue reading Solemn Hour

The Fading Horizon

The undulating horizon is ready to fold itself Settle between the approaching darkness and taper off like the flame of a magic lamp Streaks of otherworldly light add some mysterious glow to eventide There could be the celestial eyes peeping through the intricately designed calligraphic signs Eyes try deciphering the ancient texts that appear just before the day is about to retire At this hour of … Continue reading The Fading Horizon

Not so Idle Evening

Fractured rays through the timid window bring the melancholy of evening When it lays at my feet, trying to translate the sinking feeling at this tired hour Earth needs to rest here after a long discourse from unnecessary talk Sitting here, trying to smell the aroma of the calm evening from some untouched corner The light play truant while passing through the cracked patterns of an … Continue reading Not so Idle Evening

Into the Darkness

It’s easier slipping into the folds of darkness Even the shadows immerse themselves in a reverie Bright drunkenness and concoctions of emotions Chances of translating the stupor are feeble Alluring darkness slips in some desires To lift the veil of haze or not to admire the Moon Awakened feelings erase the inhibitions Allowing darkness to rush in a new fervour A sense of belonging in a tranquil … Continue reading Into the Darkness

In Silence and Fading Light

Bathed in last glow of light, taciturn moments pull the mind away from distractions Reddened sky quiver eloquently as tranquil rays permeate the thirsty canvas Drunken on the fine feelings, the moment overwhelms a soul keen to rest awhile This rhythm of peacefulness embraces the being like a mother holding her child Tender moments reflected in the soft playfulness of light across the landscape ~Amitav Continue reading In Silence and Fading Light
