QUEST… / Poem by Asoke Kumar Mitra

 
Poem by Asoke Kumar Mitra
 
 
QUEST…
 
The secret syllables of life
Unleafs in you
Fugitive nameless memories
Behind the eyes
 
Gathering the moss of darkness
Winds playing with sand dunes
Unknow fears tied to the tongue
Dialogue of sands and pebbles
 
Life’s stray desires in a twilight zone
Locked within grass flowers
The truth and lie of life faded from sight
Bewildered masked time…
 
Beware, a crevice, hidden in the rock
A whisper, a cry, laughter, the wind blows
Destiny waits within your fingers
Quest in your eyes, waiting for the spring…
 
(C) Asoke Kumar Mitra, February 2021
