High up in the sky

Scratching, poking and ripping
Through the shroud of silence
That miles of the Pacific throws all over it,
The breeze reaches out to me
in rushed incoherence
And hurried swoop.
Meanwhile,
High up,
in the sky,
Silence- the ocean’s ally,
Takes turns at captivating me.

Born in the year 1968, my childhood was spent amidst the beautiful scenic landscape of a small town in India, Ranchi. Though an engineer by qualification, reading, writing and cooking are my passions. Another thing that I am passionate about is my country, India. As they say, a lifetime is probably not enough to explore the whole of India. Currently based in Kolkata, I can be reached at gdutta17@gmail.com.
