The Unforgettable
by Rajender Krishan
Bookmark and Share
  I have known her
for forty four years
she's known my wife
for thirty eight years
We three last met
fifteen years ago
 
We remember
and talk about her, often
 
I picked up the phone
and called her the other day
 
With caller IDs the norm
she knew I had dialed
"Hello … at last you called!"
"Haan" is all I could say
 
Our six words discourse
lingered
for fifteen long minutes
in tranquil silence
 
The lexicon repository
assimilated in sixty two years
became extinct
 
Wonder, what I actually aspired to say?
Curious, if she expected anything else to hear?

Comment 27 Dec. 2012
TO: Mr. Rajinder Krishan

Your beautiful poem takes me close to Tagore's -

My heart will recluse
In your silence profuse
As of the profound full-moon night
With its solitude’s calm light;
All my life and youth
My whole world you’ll soothe,
With your glory you’ll fill
Like the night’s still.
Alone will wake your eye
Your compassion on me to lie,
Shade of your robe to cover
My lone for ever.
All my pain and blight,
My euphoria and delight
With fragrance you’ll fill
Like the night sentinel still.

Comment The most expressive moments are when both can feel the lump in their throats

Comment Six words,
Fifteen minute-silence,
Sixty-two years of
Knowing,
Summed up,
Quietly,
Intense,
Personal,
A poem
Or,
A meditation?

Comment The power of silence is more destructive than the greatest of the ammunition in this universe.
And the depth of communication through silence speaks more intensely and directly: striking the soul with a vocab that can never ever be written in any form of linguistic repository....

Great experience it should have been...
and more so....your idea to share such a delicate and sentimental moment...with the readers...
