Sushil Kumar's Blog

straight from my heart and soul

The Library

Dozens sit with dead silence
Tagore staring from larger than life portrait
his eyes freezed in the vacuum of divinity
the silence of air is broken
by flutter of newspapers,
the squeaks of chair
to attend distant calls on cell.

A bird chirps on a tree
to invite others for intimate gossips
inanimate blade of fans
wobble the lifeless pages of books.

The twitter of titahri bird
rivals the silence of air conditioner.
Dozens of heads immersed
in lifeless pages of books.

    Hahaha, I’m at the library right now, sitting in silence, except for the tap-tap of my computer’s keys and the hundred other people surrounding me. 😀

    • Hi Violeta. Thanks for the comment and forgive me for the delayed comment. 🙂

        Hi!!! No problem. 😀 It was never an issue.

        I was thinking about you… Again… Hahaha…. I watched the movie you suggested, Kabhie Kabhie. And wow… one surprise after another. It was really good! The video shots of the region were beautiful! I was really happy to get another visual feel for the region. It looked really peaceful, and something else…. I’m feeling it, but can’t put a word to it … Anyway, I think it’s time I end this longggg comment. 😀 Many thanks for the suggestion! {{{hugs}}}
