The Fire Bird

As 'distinctly'as Edgar Allan Poe,
I sat 'peering deep into that darkness',
The silence grew depth unknown,
The violet became brighter and brighter.

As 'The Raven'at 'his window lattice',
The fire bird on my shoulder sat,
It's wings became wider and wider
Engulfing my head into the silence unknown.

Bisy Untan, Darkness is not something that I desire to look into but I do know that the only difference is I cannot see but in reality the space has not changed. Interesting poem.silence grew depth unknown and wings grew wider and wider. were central to the depth within this poem. Thanks for writing blessings in your writing and life Kathy
Reminded me of Sugathakumari-ji in one of her Malayalam poems singing: ഇരുട്ടിന്‍റെ പക്ഷി താണെത്തി പതുത്തതാം തൂവലില്‍ എന്നെയും ചേര്‍ത്ത് പൊരുന്ന ഇരിക്കുകയായി, ആ പട്ടുതൂവല്‍ച്ചാര്‍ത്തിനുള്ളിലൊതുങ്ങി ഞാനല്‍പമിരുന്നുകൊള്ളട്ടെ, പതുക്ക ഒരല്‍പം കരഞ്ഞുകൊള്ളട്ടെ, ......... മതിയൊന്ന് ശാന്തമിരുന്നുകൊള്ളട്ടെ, ഹൃദന്തരം ശാന്തിയെ ധ്യാനിച്ചിടട്ടെ. (quoted fro memory) . Thanks for sharing this poem.
