WHISPERS: The Dance In The Night


This is a story about Famous Sun Temple of Konark, India; where in ancient times, Sun God was worshiped. Now it has become a monument instead of temple, it was.

THE DANCE IN THE NIGHT
_____________________


Deep forest stood up in silence

Shook the breeze softly
As the old man walked towards
Withered old Bunyan tree
Bent from centuries of walking
Each step in time, too heavy to take
Slowly he settled down,
On the roots of Bunyan tree



Today forest looked fresh

He slowly remembered the torrential rain
That woke him from his slumber
Last evening
How his memories have started failing
Falling, like un-sculpted thoughts
Littering the manicured garden
Over his sculpted being



How he repents

His promise to the ancient kings
To remain forever chained
To the chiseled devotions of simple beings
How the forever turning wheels
That holds a promise of perpetual sunrise
Drove away life, away from him
Leaving him here; alone and forlorn


The rustle of wind,
Broke his chain of thoughts,
As it slowly settled down
In deep devotion, still, still around him
He looked up, as the Daksha’s and Dakshini’s
Musicians, Singers and dancers slowly arrived
From their stone places, cast way back in history
Bowed low, in reverence of glory that’s lost


The scent of flowers spread the stage
Far and wide
Sea moved closer
River stopped flowing nearby
As stars and moon arrived
In full glory of night
The deep forest, looked up and smiled
Clouds have gone, Curtain’s up
As the old man watched
Another moment of history
Has begin to perform, for the night
