Enchanting Poetry_Sunil Sharma

Written by Sunil Sharma



poemWhen the tinted window is opened grudgingly,

The breeze rushes in through the tiny opening

In the sliding door,

Vigorous and singing

Like a screaming kid late and muddied,

After a long outdoor games on a summer morning

Played in the little courtyard full of cars and bikes


But happy being indoors for his toons.


Passage of timep

Your speech

Now sounds like

A backfiring scooter;

Earlier it was—

Like the golden drops

Sliding off naturally

From a honey-comb

Made in the recess of a building

By the smart bees

As there are no trees around.
