Light Melted In Darkness:Meena Gajabhiye

Meena Gajabhiye

Light Melted In Darkness

Day slants, narrows down
And then I melt
In the empty space of darkness.
Though I am severed in two
No one cares
Their leafless bough
Never blossoms!
Although they strike root
Seeped in my blood
I am entangled in python-coils
For ages.
Their venomous hiss
Turns my day into night
And when I reach out for a sun-ray
It recedes far away
Like the end of a dream
When the eyelid is opened.

Translated by Charudatta Bhagwat
