After An Eternity

Moonlit night didn’t dared to speak
As flames kept on growing strong

The wait was getting longer
Patience was nowhere to be found

The eldest gazed at the sky above
And finally raised his hands

The crowd turned silent
Even crickets forgot to chirp

The aroma filled the air
Igniting both fire and the crowd

They didn’t stopped their progress
As night got darker and darker

And so, after an eternity
The tribe finally devours

Upon a homosapien!



For The Daily Post’s Aromatic, Scorched and Anticipation

    Human beings may be endowed with kindliness, gentleness, love,,pacifism…
    And at the same the same time, be the cruellest of man.
    We are a paradox, a contradiction in ourselves

      We have taken a different approach in the name of modernization and civilized manners but the core is still the same, I feel.
