In The Random Lake of Consciousness by Himanshu Ranjan

Himanshu Ranjan | Jun 25th, 2019 | poetry | No Comments


I am the fire breathing thought
that spurts like an absurd ripple
in the random lake of consciousness.

Where nerves meet and blink
in the compartment of a selfish train
skipping their meal of twenty hugs.

Silent withdrawal of timeless eyes
into the lost darkness of the light
sparkling a battle of daily chores.

The thoughts float in a zig-zag fashion
as tiny dust particles in the sunbeam.
Do the sun rays know their dead stories?

I know days will depart by every day
and I will search for the stations lost
in those dust bubbles on a blurry day.

Tracing the signs of the mind bursting
volcanic memories that burn like lava
in the random lake of consciousness.
