A flutist’s notes

P.C :- Lucas Albuquerque

During the sublime time of twilight,

As day slips away after a hard day’s work ,

Along the banks of river,

A flutist’s notes weighs through the picturesque city,

Cutting across the steady waters flowing far and wide,

Beyond the sturdy monument standing like a beacon of hope,

He reminisces of days with his partner strolling along the banks,

Etched forever now in folds of history,


Faithfully bore,

The water,

The Iron Lady,

The time,

A testimony to their bond of forty magical years,

Now an unwilling witness to his,


A grief I not see a single day in these forty years of togetherness,

That I see in these fourteen days of your passing,

His flute involuntarily plays,

As birds pause to listen,

Time stands still,

And life flows through every vein,

The flowers of the fiction plant rooted in my brain, the voice of the inexpressible feelings hidden in my heart and the eruption of the theories burning in my mind– I made a ball out of the three, threw it high into the sky and it landed right at my blog.
