A SUMMER POEM


by Jayanta Mahapatra




Sometims a rain comes


slowly across the sky, that turns


upon its grey cloud, breaking away into light


before it reaches its objective.


The rain I have known and traded all this life


is thrown like kelp on the beach.


Like some shape of conscience I cannot look at,


a malignant purpose is a nun’s eye.


Who was the last man on earth,


to whom the cold cloud brought the blood to his face?


Numbly I climb to the mountain-tops of ours


where my own soul quivers on the edge of answers.


Which still, stale air sits on an angel’s wings?


What holds my rain so it’s hard to overcome?

  1. I close this week with this beautiful poem, dense, philosophic, inherent in the indians poets. Rita de Cássia Amorim Andrade.
