SOLITUDE OF PALM, A Poem by Ranjit K Sahu


A Poem Composed by Ranjit K Sahu

Standing erect over the sun kissed fields

On a summer day it greets passersby

Loads of berries from its hard core it yields

In the heat as the terrain burns out dry

Tired souls surely find no shade or solace

Under the spreading crown of thorny fronds

Delusions of company fill its space

Every time a man makes and breaks his bonds


Of lonely hours are made its summer days

From dawn to dusk it searches for a friend

Passersby stop a while and walk away

And each day gifts loneliness in the end

Life is tough but it still stands tall and firm

Making solitude its existence’s charm
