November Diaries

By Dr. Piku Chowdhury

November is a strange limbo in tropical terrain

Somewhere between festive highs and silent pain

Of imminent fall. The time to look back

Before the last leaves drop into oblivion.

The night sky burns with pyroclastics,

Rituals to dispel evil and vice, as diyas flicker in silent attempt

To retain some sun in eclipsed hearts.

November skies a strange contradiction

With pristine blues and weeping greys

That pour some secret wishful moments

 In the confluence of heat and cold.

As verdant rain-washed desires and dreams

 transform into mellowed gold.

Flashes of evil in ghostly chill

 fill apprehensive autumn nights-

As hearts gear up for snowy heights

shedding the past in a stupendous feat,

November diaries fill with past

 that blends with confused present-

Macabre tales of trick or treats.
