Of Colors
Author: Anjali Thapa


Red rivers, red tributaries
Black nights, black road
Rifles do,
The sentries load
Tremulous hands soothe petrified souls
Where are we heading to ?
Red sashes, white stars
White garments, red pyres
Victims ambushed,
Electrocuted wires
Fighting sons leave panicking kin
Where are we heading to?
Camouflaged beetles, green ants
Red sky, brown vales
Oh! Humanity,
Where does it dwell?
Intimidated eyes see annihilated dreams
Where are we heading to?

You speak the emotions of your observations so well. How could one help to wonder where it will all lead.

I love your writing style. Your poetry has life beyond the words
