a tiny whit of time

A tiny whit of time
caught in a time warp
without wings nosedived into deep waters
withdrawn into mother earth’s amniotic sac

a feckless mama’s boy
a dour misanthrope
destiny’s child
bedevilled by occurrences
suffered a fate!

but there, in the mother’s womb
there is enough water for the feeble fragments
to be swaddled in fairy mother’s embrace

every night the moonlight simmers gently
variegating it into prismatic multihued lights;

by and by the scrap of time emerges
from the time warp
to stretch its legs,
tiptoes out of the water
and sails close to the wind
that tiny whit of time

I hail from the northeastern town of India Gorakhpur. My perpetual displeasure arose from the hypocrisy in the society underneath the semblance of religion, culture. The conditioning for compliance urged me to put down the impressions in my mind. A few years ago I took to blogging in a language I was yet to make my own. I was fortunate enough to have my pieces published on websites like Spillwords, Quiver Review, Elephant Journal, and anthologies published under Indie Blue Publishing, Spectrum of thoughts, Flairs and Glairs. I believe I am a work in progress.
