Poetry 2017 Longlist, Dimple Nahata


Dimple Nahata

At times when we see
And Keep seeing on
Towards This naked earth
Know not, what one thing teaches,
bears the burden of countless things,
Know not , what more it gives ,
Tells the great untold ,
Abides, burns,
Injures, perishes,
Yet wanders with alive existence
After seeing, I tried to listen,
But never heard a single sigh,
Never heard a heartless cry,

Felt the presence of many Flowers,
That my heart wants to fill in
This might not be felt tomorrow,
I wished to touch, hold, feel,
But, suddenly, I realized,
What can I feel in boundaries
Whatever I want to feel,
Is far beyond restrictions,
Oh! What words would I write.
