Lost Pigeons (Poetry)

Bombs. Blasts. Blood.
Limbs torn.
Tears shed.
Eyes sore.
Aches felt-
not only in body
but in heart as well...

Bombs. Blasts. Blood.
Silence shattered.
Lives tattered.
Surroundings withered.
Pigeons faltered-
before they flew away...
Will they be seen again?

  1. The pigeons always alight again, and that is both the strength of Mumbai and its tragedy. Since everything comes back to normal so quickly, no one bothers to ensure this never happens again.
