…Sitting on his favorite chair. Well that doesn’t usually happen but it is not very unusual to happen as well. Recently we’ve been having power cuts during night, few hours though, due to supply interruption. Hopefully by the time I publish this post, it will be back.
Anyway on one such night with everything dark around and the prevalent silence, my senses arose to observe whatever it could catch the glimpse of. The following poem shows the manifestation of my musings.
A wet black night
And posing darkness around,
Drizzling, raining & the gusty wind
Blowing with pluvial sound;
A dry silent room,
There ravenous me sat
Observing, thinking, feeling & writing
Scratching dully on a scratch pad;
Distant flickering lights,
glittering on slender poles;
Standing unmoved in rain
Unperturbed like breathless souls;
I wonder if they enjoy the rain
Or feel a bit of pelting pain
Do they try to seek the shelter?
Does this cats & dogs make them falter?
Cricket creaking in the night
All around darkness & nothing in sight
Faint music hummed from the next dorm
Soothing & chilling, it took its form
With my tech gadgets discharged
I regained my senses, wide and far
Giant hostel buildings standing grandeur
Drenched like others – why it’s that gigantic for?
Insect flutters outside the window
Colliding & crashing, toiling hard to get in
Bottles, keys, coins & books lying still
How lifeless are these lively being
I try to think but nothing strikes
So I write what I observed instead
Here & there voices settle down
And so my running pen speed.
