The Voice

Reading Time: 1 minute

A storm rages in a voice, dispelling tranquillity. Aparajita, the poet, seeks peace and in her Muse. Here’s a poem that moves from despair to hope, in .

Just a voice

And the Herculean storm

Hides in air.

The scrapped beats now

Cool in the harmonica.

There’s a break in the ,

A little apostrophe in the

The desperation of the poet.

The truce reminds her,

The role of the muse.

An epic role

Which could have altered

The long narrative of


And insert a lyric,

The ebullient, personal lyric

Crying in the symphony

Of longing,



Before the voice united.
