AWAITING

by Afzal Moolla

 

Awaiting a breathy murmur,

a voice long dimmed,

lost in the gnarled

passageways of memory.

 

Awaiting a dusky whisper,

from that muted voice,

adrift on the breeze.

 

The echoing footsteps,

through time's murky pathway,

seeking to dispel the settling gloom.

 

Awaiting a hushed memory,

to surface and to fill,

the void left by wordless banter.

 

Until the deafening din,

is finally,

still.
