Whispers: Modern Halloween


They tell me about life and death
I talk to them too, constantly
When I am awake, I dream

Image curtsey

Like an enchantress, Sea gathered her skirt 
The waves moved away from the shore 
And I thought she will fly 

Some followed her on the open sea bed 
Lured as she tentatively revealed her bare thighs 
and then she unleashed her naked fury 

A big wall of rage swept across, in all consuming terror 
A few survived the surge but then many died inside 
Engulfed in her passionate cries

Few days later, I found a little girl curled up on the beach 
Small hands holding some sea shells 
as waves lapped her dead smile.... 
Written after Tsunami in 2005, 
While working with an NGO near Chennai, India

Nine is divine
One is one
Humbled in collective pain
We stand in silence
While the world calls 911

A tribute to the victims of 911

नमः शिवाय
Om Namah Shivaya
