Rose From An Alien Planet
This is how
by Arun Maji
Cloud clouds blue sky-
Before, my eyes could see
Exquisite elegance of Jupiter's ring.
My mind could hear
Tune of taming flute coming from rainbow land.
My heart could dance
Divine rhythm of flowers and rivers.
But on that day, she came.
That beautiful rose from an alien planet,
That smiling ray from a shining star.
Her forehead was covered with sweats.
She could have been tired-
Yet, her eyes were speaking
An untold story of an unknown land.
Her smile was singing
Secrets of some unknown paradise.
I felt like
Wiping sweats from her forehead.
O poor sweat,
How could you hide her divine beauty?
Messed up. I was badly messed up.
My sense, my intelligence, my patience-
They disappeared. They all disappeared.
Her sudden powerful existence at that moment,
Extinguished my very own existence.
What was it?
Was it the moonlight in her smile?
Or it was the astral force hiding in her deep black eyes?
What extinguished my existence?
"Call me, call me when you like."
Yes, I called her.
But she did not respond.
And my heart?
Twisting. Twisting in agony.
This is how
Cloud clouds blue sky.
