Sudha Dixit

With The Wind – A ghazal

 

Flowers, leaves, that  swing  the air

All  signify  the  spring  in  the   air

 

 Breeze, the trees, the crickets and fleas

Humming  around, and  dancing  in the air

 

The  towering  hills  disappear  in  mist  as,

Droplets, the  waterfalls  bring  in the air

 

You, by  chance, happened  in  my  life

I  constructed  a  building  in  the  air

 

Pains  and sorrows  were bound to follow

The tell – tale  signs  formed  strings  in the air

 

Your  sudden,  unwanted  silence  and  apathy 

Created  a  gloom  and  ailing  in the air

 

Dark  clouds  swallowed  shiny  bright  sun

I  groped   around,  found  nothing  in the air
