Winter Evening!

By Madhu Gangopadhyay

Winter Evening!

It is winter again!
Your intoxicating scent,
Mingle with the chill wind!
As I sit by the fireplace
The crackling of cinder
In the grate,
Your musical laughter!
Those dainty fingers
Kissed by the glove
Yet I felt their cashmere touch!
On my cheeks!
I pull the pashmina closer,
Two decades,
It still smells of you!
Through the gaps in the blind
I catch a glimpse of the moonless
Night. Stars don't shine!
It is dark winter time!
I snuggle down in my
Lonliness! Hugging my knees
Close to my bosom!
Waiting for my broken sun to rise!
Its copper glow to light,
For spring cannot hide forever!
