Walking on the edge of a river-27

English Translation – Swathi Sreepada

Telugu original written by – Dr.C.Bhavani Devi

Inner kindling

Nothing hides
But with a silence
Hundreds of days of peace
History of silence
Nothing we can have in stories we read
My silence of that time
A helplessness
It’s a line on my forehead
Written by myself
To record
This latest silent history of revolution
Give me a pen of fire
For the writing of ocean water volume
Get ready a bottle of ink
For a deep silence
Unreachable to any language
The responsibility is not mine
Ask the inhumanity that kept you
Standing at the premises
Why do I become like this?
It is a question to be asked you
My silence has a language of mind
My pen has a reason for tears
My silence is not at all a lament of neglect
Not a scattered blabber
Not even stagnation or worklessness
This is an inner kindling unavoidable silence
Soundless silent burning meditation
