Safe from words: haiku poem
Ink art by Vineeta

If my words could blaze,
Would I need fire to burn
trash from existence

If my tears could stain
Would I need ink to write tale
of fathomless pain

If my sigh could sing
Would I need symphonies to
tune dissonant souls

If my curse could kill
Would I need benedictions
or better be safe

Its better be safe
and burn the litter of life
before it’s too late.

Sangeeta Mishra
