Waiting at a Bus-stop--By Sunil Uniyal--India

Waiting at a Bus-stop

He waits for his bus to take him home,
His head like a quiet, derelict dome.

Brooding on his blighted years?
Future hopes? Present fears?
Homely cares? Office rows?
Fleeting joys? Staying woes?
Friends coming disguised as foes?
This, or anything else? Who knows !

Sunil Uniyal was born and brought up in Lucknow, India. He has been writing poems and haiku for over thirty years and these have appeared in various print and e-journals in India and abroad. He is also engaged in the translation of Hindi, Sanskrit and Urdu poetry, besides Garhwali folk songs. His publications include The Target is Behind the Sky- Fifty Poems of Kabir (Low Price Publications, Delhi 2012) and Tears of Blood- Selected Verses of Ghalib (Partridge Publishing, 2014)
