Dusk

The ruins of Bhangarh


The sky bears down upon the Earth
A kaleidoscope of ebbing colours
Shades of dark and ashen blue
 
Far away in the horizon the rising stars blink
A little dazed, a little fazed
And the moon takes hesitant steps towards the canvas of night
The bride of heaven
 
Draws a veil of grey inch by inch
Over a face deep in thought


Life
as though takes a U-turn
Solemn, Grave, Unbending


Dusk
A moment resonates in solitude
Promise of a Certitude
Deep, distant dies in   


Silence
Cascading in waves




 Deluge
Engulfs
