All is Quiet-During Covid times

To roost in the city,
silence has come;
from the hills and
far-flung hamlets,
From forests and
within the ocean’s depths,
From the distant horizon
And earth’s edges,
From the vast desert stretches,
From cold polar continents
From ruins in history’s pages.
Like a maiden
bedecked in her finest,
She comes;
Dress the colour of azure of the sky
Spotted with the white of the clouds,
Luxuriant in the colours of the sun,
Fragrant with the smell of spring’s flowers,
The arrival greeted by
the cacophony of birds.
Silence has come to the city
And fills every street,
Every mall,
Every factory,
Every store.
At night, it dances with the traffic lights
At every cross-road!
It seeps into the human heart
And overwhelms human arrogance!

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.

Poetry and Prose of Ken Hume

Engaging in some lyrical athletics whilst painting pictures with words and pounding the pavement. I run; blog; write poetry; chase after my kids & drink coffee.

Tales of the Hidden Trails

A whole lot in the mountains...A tad bit in the sea...deeper in the countryside...dwells a part of me.....A native of nowhere...i cant be tamed i'm free...always torn between two places...to be or not to be!

Politics. Humour. Stories. Philosophy. Poetry. And all in randomness within this universe and the next, because why not?
