Poetry: "A poem that did not rhyme" by Shivani Bindhyeshwari


They looked at her in awe

She was enchanting

There was something,

Something in her that touched,

Not tenderly though.

Like

When a painter

touches the soft feathers of a paint brush

On a canvas

With a rough, harsh, random stroke.

Not bound in patterns,

Fresh and abstract.

Raw

and Alive.

She was an amalgamation

She was a paradox

She was a hymn

with thundering beats

A wordless song

They read her

She engulfed them,

Embraced them.

She was a tsunami,

The kind that causes continental drifts,

Reckoning the end


Inviting a new beginning.


Word


by word,


She would cast a magic spell.


And when she would end


They would search for their feet,


Not on the ground anymore?


Who was she?


She was a musical mime,


She was a poet's only crime


She was a poem that did not rhyme.
