Bharati Kapadia

 

Rhythm Opens Its Eyes

Somewhere
a clock ticks
but no tock follows.
 
Elsewhere
a heart
for the first time beats
and stops.
 
Here
a teardrop 
in mid-air
freezes.
 
Aborted rhythm
soundless
retreats.
But
 
A clock ticks 
and stops
without a tock
next instant
a newborn heart
throbs and ceases
in turn
a teardrop
freezes 
in mid-air.
 
Now,
 
Rhythm
opens its eyes
and winks.
 
 
 2012 Bharati Kapadia

 

Bharati Kapadia is a visual artist from Mumbai, India and has exhibited widely in India and abroad. Bharati's work is primarily dictated by priciples of poetics and is metaphorical in its implications. Bharati writes poetry infrequently and takes part in informal recitation milieu. http://www.bharatikapadia.com/ gives an indepth overview of my Bharati Kapadia's work and profile.
