Hidden Path

March 6, 2016 | By

A poet’s soulful account followed by his estrangement from his beloved.

Poetry by Gopal Lahiri

winter sun

“The winter sun trails behind the cold wind. It wipes the teardrops on your cheek.”

You don’t seem hard-pressed anymore.
Is it the separation or a new found glory?
The winter sun trails behind the cold wind.
It wipes the teardrops on your cheek.

The wall of the temple shines a little low
And the feather of the falcon,
The cruel song unheard, unnoticed.

The silken voice, I like
And the curves in your profile
Recalls a lengthy conversation.

Left an impression, the shadows
Migrated us to the broken roof top
We were left with a very few words.

They cannot follow the hidden path now.
