Walking on the edge of a river-22

English Translation – Swathi Sreepada

Telugu original written by – Dr.C.Bhavani Devi

22.Separately …

Separating is not only
For humans
It’s a habit of the soil and
To the rivers, mountains, and oceans
Finally, to the sky also

Not only
To the fragrances and to the winds of music
To love and affections
And silent agonies
But its but natural to every cell of nature
To cut themselves into pieces

Once upon a time only one subcontinent
Now deluded into how many countries maps
Once upon a time a wide state
Now became a multifaced to different voices
Once upon a time though it was highlighted
As the best language of all
Now changed into a dialect of different languages
Beheaded decoration of head

Then a well flourished joint family
Today becomes an agonized separated soul
Though breaking into pieces is common to
Human beings and soil
The agony in separating destruction is always
A new-formed wound
Forever a paining piece of history
