Theme: Absence

Under The Sacred Fig Tree

Under the sacred fig tree
The quiet moment pants.
Should it stretch a little more?
Can the smile slowly
Hide itself in the pepal leaves?
But this was not possible.
Time’s wings were speeding
Behind the sunlight
Where solitude was not possible,
Where the leaves were not supple.
Why the style does not return
For which I have waited for years?
Why the voice scatters?
Why the event
Still plays hide and seek with me?
Translated from original Hindustani by the author
