A Move By Dr R P Singh
Years I spent on my terrace
gilded, glittering and full bloom
with a shade to catch
from the far off view.
Communication and response
longing for the efflorescent charm
nothing dearer than that glance
that I often cherished perchance .
A gloomy fall of extra longer day
no mention, neither any possible ray
glittering there across the charm
the gut has many conjectures to lay.
I left the terrace, moved across,
a new sphere quite different
some wooden built , thatched with parched up grass
avenues to write a script new.
Zest, of course there, and the romance
but for a script new.
