Prose Poem

I look at you in helpless silence, incapable of doing
a thing for you. In the middle of the white-washed walls
of the hospital ward you lie, groaning quietly in the dark abyss of pain.
Only a miracle can bring you some relief. I have nothing to offer,
but a prayer. All my prayers reach the Almighty, an attempt I shall make.
I am trying to find ways to shake off His unbearable silence.
Desolation and numbness in your eyes drive me crazy and as
I leave the ward quietly, I hear the footsteps of death. I want to
cut off my ears to block their sound. But will that delay the advent of death?
From your voicelessness before death, I move towards your silence
after death – and I do not even want to feel angry or shed tears
at my helplessness.

I  want  to  meet  dynamic great poet  Suresh Dalal…................

J.K.PARIKH

IT IS AN EXCELLANT POEM, FULL OF DEEP SENSATION AND FEELINGS. IN PART, IT REMINDS OF KHALIL GIBRAN AND RABINDRANATH TAGORE ALSO. IT IS VERY DEEP AND SUBTLE.
IF ONE CAN SEE THE ORIGINAL POEM, ALONG WITH THE TRANSALATION, IT WILL BE AN ADDED JOY.
SURESHBHAI IS INDEED AN EMINENT WRITER AND WORDS WILL NOT DO ENOUGH TO EXPRESS ONE’S RESPONSE. THE TRANSALATION IS ALSO VERY POETIC IN NATURE.
MY HUMBLE CONGRATULATIONS !
I REQUEST THAT THIS EFFORT BE CONTINUED.
