Theme: Melancholy

Midway

Failed to tie the fence-wire,
I was held loose by the pull of string;  
Evincible eyes move away  
 

The inertia makes the falling light  
Scream...
That amassed silence in winter afternoon
 

You know, Aristotle 
How in Hamartia the dew drops gather 
How the dry leaves drop the moments of gold
 

Lonely Amaltas at a corner of Autumn 
Calls ....
Pulls the fiddlestick  
 

The fire that arranged the pyre 
Goes out one day 
Waves do rise again at the bank across 

Yet how is it 
That all seemingly drowns in mid-sea!
  

 

NB: Amaltas - Bengali name of Golden Shower Tree 

Hamartia - A literary term that refers to tragic flaws or errors that cause the downfall of character
