THE SANGUINE SNAIL / Poem by Swapna Behera

Poem by Swapna Behera 



The snail swings
In the perennial flow
Of luminous humanity

Parentheses of life ; carries the snail
The shell of mundane allegory
Scribbling footsteps on the sand
Smilies of the Sun on the dewdrops
Avowed rhythm of waves
Azure sky ,canopy air and elements
Deep in the sea toxic anger and hunger
The oily blister and crator disfigure
The lava kills syntax of nature

Love , bliss and harmony
tune the soul and boon the symphony
Destination a sapient process
The shell will return with the Anthem
under a red flag for pollution
decorate a child’s table with a message
lubricate a meddling smile
” I swim ,I can swim
Lo !I am a sanguine snail ”
