Between two wings…
 
Through flames
Through loneliness
Life moves
From spring to summer
When light falls on my face
it’s shadow falls over you .
 
Between two wings
Dreams touch the farthest star
Between two polarities
Life spins and learns to keep balance
 
A celestial light illumines a path
It runs to the stars
Just a short waik to reach there
 
Can’t hide , you can’t run away
Between our songs
The curtains may blow away
Why this emptiness when
I am not far away !
 
Now come ! get our fingers
intertwined… a bit squeezed
Let’s walk around the fallen leaves
amidst the ripening flowers of fall
 
Now its almost time to
say goodbye to winter starlight
as we move forward to spring delights
 
Our journey round the sun
Dances in rhythmic measures
Life’s treasure is not so cheap
We live to pay for it …

Last night…
 
Drunken night was weeping in pain
Murky sky was whispering rain
Stars had lost their track to heaven
 
Every throb of pain
was gathering in silence
The door was open
and you came
 
You looked into my face
I was torn into shreds
and disappeared into immeasurable depths
 
Now wind moans in the dale
Tear stained cheeks of dawn looks pale
It was just a dream , I console myself
 
You say
‘ Dreams have their own ways
Sometimes fill our palms with golden sand
If dreams die , life becomes a broken winged bird ‘

Missing you today again…
 
Your memory is still there
Clings to a moulding wall
At every gust , they push me back
Leaves murmur on dead grass .
 
Now earth is parched under the burning sun
Wet sea knows land’s thirsty soul
 
Once again my ocean of thoughts roar
‘ You are my breath ‘ I told ,
do you remember !
Where are you at ,my eyes look for
I just wish , you feel my love …
 
Missing you today again
The sky is overcast with clouds
It seems today, it will rain
Again tears will make my feet wet.
 
It is you ,
who gives me a thrill with each heartbeat
If in life
every thing pulsates into a rhythm …
 
Rajashree Mohapatra
