fading light --
the child erases
the twilight

Comments on this Poem

Comment An orange flare
lights the pale panes of the hospital
in a final wish of daylight.
It's not yet dark.

In the chiildren's ward
under a mother's face
the dead, always so young.
Water startles in the river's throat.

Its cry:
a plea to share in its curse?

Somewhere, this twilight shall fall
and hide the whiteness of jasmines about to bloom.

Newly-lit lamps
in the houses across the street
make me look out at the wet August evening
that holds up the vast unknown
in such small delicate hands.
------Twilight by Jayanta Mahapatra

Comment The child with the pencil pencilling silhouettes as well as erasing with an eraser to make it likeable. The twilight against the backdrop of the evening turning into night-time.
