The Sky with its Eyes Closed: Prakash Kharat

 Prakash Kharat

The Sky with its Eyes  Closed

Like an artist missing originality
The shy has lost its vision.
Eyes closed
It wouldn’t acknowledge
A light blue complexion,
The sudden rainbow
Of a stray eagle,
The rising
And setting of sun.

The sky does not burst into torrential monsoon rains.
The sky does not give birth to a flaming thunderbolt.
The sky cannot support its own expansion.
The sky- who has put it in the coffin?
The sky- who wrapped it in the shroud of white clouds?

Translated by Charudatta Bhagwat
