of unspoken promises

little white threads dangling from the moon
lighted feathers of snow


slowly, softly

leaning from my window

i see a little child


a reversible piece of cloth
a spread and a shroud

from the light feathers

falling in a pool of light

to drape the night

with the fireflies

fluttering with the eyelids


to be born

will not comment on the piece as such, kyunki we've discussed it already thru sms and m sure will discuss again wen u call next time :)

apart from that, i wud only like to say, that ur poetry has always had that sense of dualism inherent. u r never black and white, yin or yang... u r always black and white, yin and yang, joy and sorrow, light and darkness...spread and shroud, mirage and cloud...
