Registering change--By Sunil Sharma--India

Registering change

The dawn… anticipated
the dusk…dreaded
by the figure
strapped
to a catheter
on a steel rod
eyes drugged but
alive
to the change in the variation
and colour of the
day-light
registering subtly---
each alteration of the rhythm
 of the passage of time
from someplace in the void.

Sunil Sharma is a writer based in Mumbai, India. A college principal, he has published four books of poetry, two books of shorts and a novel in English, apart from co-editing six literary anthologies.  He edits Episteme: http://www.episteme.net.in/

  3. Hi Sunil. There are some very stark images here – catheter, drugged eyes. I suspect this was a hard poem to write. Those strong images transported me to the bedside of a seriously ill patient – a situation I have been in recently. Powerful writing! Thank you for sharing. David
