Antipodes Of A Floating Feather

Poem By Pradeep Dhavakumar

Like an infant gently handed
from one maiden to another,
slow and soft it descends,
soothing every eye that sees.

White and soft and silent;
A young Buddha in flight;
A virgin slice of paper:
A floating petal of Peace?

Minutes before, it dangled,
on a screaming dove's bod,
being severed and scattered
by a potent claw of a Hawk.

Torn, orphaned and banished;
An unknown child in coma;
A poem stripped of words:
A floating wound of War?
