Lightning

A sudden flash
skirts the sky
at a breakneck pace
A sepulchral fury
untrammeled by traffic
burns to cinder
on whom it falls
‘Inhuman wrongs redeemed’
says the priest
wearing religion on his sleeve
‘The fire-darting ogre
bares his teeth in a snarl’
says the atheist
in fearful alarm
‘A bond severed
exiled from joy’
the philosopher’s words grow dusky
Does it not toss its stole
on the earth’s shoulder,
fancies the poet
as quiver shoots in his senses
You again flashed, struck the earth
I wonder if I could
scoop your dazzling light
the rhythmic dance of life
from the earth’s dungeon
and splash blind eyes
with your milky opulence.
SUDEEP GHOSH
