Gopal’s Book

Crossing The Shoreline


They are asleep now and silent.
with two sharp cries the yellow bird flies away,
feathers begin to fall into the world below,
slowly, one after another.
they are too many to count.

These drifts and turns, I suppose,
a revolution, a transformation,
they are close against my heart,
You must flow and then anchor,
somewhere in the haze, I realize the life.
