Visitor

Poem By Parameswaran K V

A ray of light

seeping through the window

stood on the floor

bewildered-

as if it forgot

the things to say which

it came all the way.

Silent and obscure,
Creeping under the bush,

for a gap in the traffic
to cross the highway.

That we are not
Among those tossing in the sea
In little dinghies

Portrait

bowing under the weight of the cross,
bleeding from the flagellations,

when the lilacs bloomed
wriggling in the slime
feeding them with the goodness of the earth.

An Endless Journey
