Cuckoo Will Sing Again

Satish Verma

Way off at point-of-no-return, 
my geometry, 
collided with you for the last spell. 

Lines, angles and curves had 
started chopping off the hills of grace. 

I had lost my path 
in the slant profiles of brown eyes. 

You stood in shade, like a 
bronze sculpture of Michelangelo. 

And suddenly you realized, 
it was not enough.The moon 
becomes pale.A palm tree 
swings in its scars. 
At distance the horizon crashes. 

Time tricks you.Bones crackle. 
The poem was born again, 
bluish grey gem.
