Of The Inopportune!

(Painting by : Subrata Gangopadhyay.)

An anomalous human
By merely the shadow
Haggard with an apple
Hunchback to carry
Oblivious of the world
Contemplating around

Beside the murmuring
Reminiscent of bygone days
Of the self-assured gaze

The glories are thrilling
The years passed

The new face sprouted
Ready to be replaced

Old and withered
Agile and robustness lost.
The only remains

Are of the self-esteem
Lost in the world of
Pride and aplomb.

- Nandini Garg

Note : This poetry won 5th prize in the Ekphrasis Poetry writing contest -2.
