DEEP IN THE STILLNESS
by Amrits Bharati
Literal translator Lucy Rosenstein
He threw me away like a clod of earth. He didn't know I was a thing with a soul. He didn't know I was alive.
He kept on throwing me like a clod of earth out of his way - onto that neglected path that happened to be mine. And so I kept travelling along my own way. Each time some fragment broke off - some infatuation, some addiction to happiness, some earthly hope, some dream squandered on man. Each time some fragment of my being would break off. And now it was my turn. The world was already left behind - like a desert in a sandstorm, like an ocean in a hurricane, like a desolate city. Man, step by step descending, was already left behind. And now it was my turn. Standing on the last patch of earth I gathered myself into a whole thing and hurled myself into the stillness. This was my silence - pervasive and expansive. Now the world was either a dream or a sea-flower imagined at the end of the ocean. Deep in the stillness. Only the sound of my footsteps.
