Missing Couple

Beginning unknown :
Still the canoe floated
The calluses paddled.

Sunny days and moonless nights
I have watched them floating
On the river meandering.

The canoe rose and fell
On the wavelets ten thousand times
During the springs.

Black the hairs were ;
Many winters passed ;
Now snow white being exposed.

Narrow escapes
From the maelstroms unexpected,
And forward floated.

A long voyage ; two together ;
Funeral feast smells ;
They drink to the lees.

A long missing : one doubts
They rest under the holy *banyan tree ;
Empty canoe tied to the tree.

*Banyan tree is a holy tree for Hindus.

    It sounds like a journey of faith, Fabiyas, and I was glad to see this couple reach their destination. I have a canoe and feel very close to God when paddling up and down the area rivers. Great poem and thank you for sharing part of the Hindu culture with us! Love, Carolyn
