Carvings on the Soul: “Prosetry”


By: Ranjeeta Nath Ghai

A momentous decision
And a marriage had shattered
Years ago, owing to the conflict between
The tenacious attitude of the wife
And the wayward attitude of the husband.
Intolerable wrongs; broken promises
Vindication, lack of money and depression.

As time passed by the Carvings on the Soul deepened.

Time slipped through her fingers
Like dust beneath her feet.
Bruises o
f youth have faded away.
Now only t
he gravestone and the frail

Ol’ woman remained. Sunken
Cheeks, frosted hair and
Haunted, deserted, barren eyes.

As time passed by the Carvings on the Soul deepened.

Now an old widow with no tears left to cry…
Deaf to this world. Sometimes mumbling
And talking to herself, the other times
Frantic, desperate, delirious. Ignorant
To the world around her holding on
To the last vestiges of her life…

As time passed by the Carvings on the Soul deepened.

And no longer bitter or cursing.
Sitting under a mango tree she watched
The brown ants scuffle around the weeds
Clinging tenaciously to the mango tree for support
Just as she now clung to her daughter.

As time passed by the Carvings on the Soul
Deepened and took different shapes of Life…
