Winter Sleep

Satish Verma

The dust to dust phase 
in between, you 
did't want a self-destruction 
to resurrect a dying myth. 

Only God knows. Why 
there was only the body language 
to explain the miracle. 

You wake up a frog 
from hibernation. There was 
no drought. Plenty of rains. 
No nightmares. One has to change 
the climate shift. 

A muted denial stays 
in throat. You wanted to say 
the whole truth about life, 
which never was uttered. 

Scoliosis tilts the water 
balance. You cannot carry the 
vessels on head. Doubts 
would play on the script.
