Times without number
That’s as far as one could remember
Or  better still conjecture
At this end of this ocean we stood, at the edge
Aghast at the tardiness of virility
Invisible except for its vivid physiognomy
That swirled and rolled and spent itself
In a recurring recuperation of empathy
Till rains agoraphobic arrived
As a successful  ‘in vitro’ in the glass sky 
A sodden blast of breeze scattering a mound of leaves 
Breathing  into the fertile insides
Slick in fermentation
Sticking  to sticky  bloodied life.

    M55 good jaganath keep writing you are my another friend from my poems prabhakar mishra is my another read my poem SOUL Fly in the sky. I have no boundary reaches to high. I see and feel that alone Willfully reaches to places of unknown. Above the earth there is no struggle. It would be wisdom to keep alone. I shall fly in that blue sky for ever. After death soul will be remain there. I am a bird without wing but mind. It is true that I have no wing. But mind will fly and will be left behind. Family will remember for loss of a member. No escapes where everybody will go there. Youth passed speedily when enough strength of blood. But now at old age, blood is cold. Saroj khan[sakha] Fly

    this is the one that so impressed me in the challenge, as I noted at the time: "great use of language, alliteration and word play, written by a deep thinker..." :)
