There Is A Block Of Sun

October 22, 2011 at 4:21 am (Dominic Alapat, Poetry)


on one wing of my building

a long rectangle of light

from the bed in my mother’s room

where I lie reading

I see another block of sun

on the building opposite

and in the evening

across the choc-a-block

stretch of buildings

in Jogeshwari

all the way into the far distance

the light plays and plays

with the faded colours

of whites, orange-pinks, blue-greys,

till the very end

where nothing more can be seen

but the sky

hanging like a sleepy eye.
