Kavyakankshini...bewitching words spun with spindles of thought and quicksilver yarn...: June 2014



On the dark stony rock of solitude
I want to carve out a headless sphinx
Sheer dormant power
Wings etched in stone
Waiting to take off to an unknown
where its sightless eyes cannot see
Dust, air, rain
Tears, sweat, pain
Nothing affects him
The headless mammoth sphinx
Drawn out and frozen claws
Scratched on the wasted land
There he stands in
All majestic headless
Magical glory....
