RAGING STORM OF MEMORIES

 


RAGING STORM OF MEMORIES

 

-Rajiv Khandelwal (India)

 

Today

Rudra'srage echoed through the winds

Howling, roaring in anger

Like a wounded beast

 

The sky wept with heavy clouds

 

Tall trees were bowing in submission

Against his wrath and might

While the smaller ones

Trembled like a dancer's hands

As if caught in the grip of Parkinson's dance

 

The scene

With its atmospheric chill

Reminded me of the day

When you chanced upon me

Having coffee with another woman

In a dark-candle-lit themed restaurant

Exuding a romantic ambience

With the Tandav Shiva

Smoking out of your eyes
