As the evening breeze drifts gently by Scarcely stirring the blades of the green It lugs a message from the distant lands That darkness will descend in a little while To cast it’s spell of shadowy tranquility.
There is a melody in today’s silence, A low poignant tune of nothingness. An ache in my heart ~ dimness of shadows Dusk enshrouding the soreness within the soul. Wounded whirling mind haunts this hour.
I am back to those days gone long back, When as a child I laid upon my Ma’s lap Utterly aloof of the ways of the world I tried so hard to grab hold of the wind Which stroked me once and then was gone.
Even now I am playing an identical game To touch a chord of the recollections of the past. History takes wing to reach out to me I try to be moved by it, feel it, to be in it again. But what is once gone has left not to return.
Catching what went before is so much like Arresting the breeze within a baby fist I can barely feel it and handle it with my mind Alas! Time once departed is gone forever In no way to return ever………..!
