Song sans Syllables

Written by: S.Jagathsimhan Nair

Song  sans syllables

Leave it all alone, be it that way
Leading  all the way, know it is done 
Whose it is is the silly question
Of  those it came thru’ is redemption
Being born and bearing till reborn
Of shame shorn and sharing till worn
Ignored breeze  and a due forfeit
Missing sheets of my blown away thoughts 
No one owns  the vultures falling dead
Long live carcasses  ‘diclofenac’ed .
Step after step in the sacred stretch
Stop after stop in pared-down patch
Going the whole way in gentle highs
Sinking  with  lows  of soporific sighs.
