An Evening

mist-1.jpg

an evening of our sharing had
captured shadows uneven
of a commencing dark
the railway lines had been running long
crossing a beleaguered sky
you have been waiting for a surge
i have been waiting too
the mist came resplendent
in sudden fury
we were lost
voices left to be
buried
moist
in another
season.

Watercolor and Poem by Amitabh Mitra

    I love the idea of voices left behind in the mist long after the people are gone.
