Charuta. K / suman datta


It was a full moon night .. the moon looked quite solemn but beautiful.
During my late evening walk,
I couldn’t resist the temptation of looking up at the sky every other minute. Somehow, somewhere I felt a tinge of loneliness...a sorrow lingering in my heart,
even though I had my near and dear ones around me that evening.
Slowly, without me noticing it, a small teardrop made its way over my cheek.
It was a moment of mixed feelings. In the depths of my heart I was grieving
all that I had lost in my life. At the same time I knew life was much more beautiful than I could ever appreciate.
The moon was all alone in the sky with no stars shinning along . Still its loneliness looked beautiful and mind grasping to me. I realized the beauty in solitude and no longer felt the tinge of grief. I could feel myself reaching for my inner self and it was one of the most peaceful moments of my life.
It was a full moon night… and the moon kept shining brightly.

On His Regaining Eyesight

That blade of grass,quivering in the cool morning air,
it filled my eyes with a joy ethereal.
I gazed at it, and then I found I couldn't hear
the breeze whisper as it brushed past
and while I used to say 'the grass is soft',
I learned to say 'the grass is green'.
I saw the flowers- red,violet and yellow
bathing in the heart-warming light
but alas! I couldn't hear them say 'hello'
as I used to even some days ago.
I roamed solitary in the garden
as I used to do days ago
and I said 'beg your pardon?'
and yet couldn't hear their voices low.
Thus, with joy and sorrow, was my flight
from the world of 'sounds' to the world of 'sight'.
