Call of Kaligonga

written by: Reza Raza

 

Call of hectic time-
Lost in the deep emptiness of solitude
There grows desire in the lonely heart
For the beloved one.

But-
Nobody is there in the infinite loneliness
Husky voice of mourning goes on-
as if the Gallinule tired of groaning.
And free of illusion-
Hands of surreal clock moves on.

Then-
The river Breaks the silence
And welcomes-
Welcomes from the core of its heart
And That’s river Kaligonga-
Along with its crystal clear water
Welcomes me in its soothing voice.
