Listening To Night

Satish Verma

Walk warily. 
You are in crisis zone. 
Moon will not rise today. 

A bare phenomenon 
of shedding the 
fears in dark. 

Now you will confront 
to take revenge. 

Like nocturnal 
flight of a bat, to find 
the mate on plum. 

Hangs a tale of 
a squirrel, waiting 
for a Buddha.
