Their Boon



There was the sun over the horizon-
There were busy steps of men and cattle,
There were colours in every petal and fence…
It was the utility hour to balance profit and loss…
Nobody had time for silly topics like heart and love
Except an old couple who lived down the valley of dark…

Then the sun dissolved in the canvas-
There were nest seeking birds and sins,
There was monochrome in portrait and minds…
It was the serenity that demarcated life and death…
Nobody retained spirit to cherish for things like love
Except an old couple who lived down the valley of dark…

At last night spilled her bottle of ink –
There were fire seeking food and bodies,
There was shadow veiling both God and ghost…
It was when midnight and dawn shared the same bed…
Nobody recalled daytime promises made to their hearts
Except that blind couple who lived down the valley of dark!
