One Poem by Nawal Kishor Sharma

Written in response to this month’s Special Challenge.


The enchanted mill
Moving yet still
Flux turns into fixity
Change morphs into unity
When the ‘world of born’
And the ‘world of made’
Blend into one single whole
When there is ceasefire
Between body and soul
Between fire and rain
Revealing magical in mundane
In a flash that comes and goes
As eternity glows
In an instant of time
Untangling knots
Connecting dots
Linking the dull and sublime
And then the terra firma and the blue
Yesterday today and tomorrow
Man and machine
Humdrum and routine
Seem to be bound by one glue
That defamiliarizes the old
And makes it new
