Thursday Poet's Rally week 16 ::Empty Cradle Rocking In time::

Here's my entry to Jingle's Thursday Poet's Rally week 16. Any one can join the rally. All you need to do is leave a comment in Jingle's  Blog... :)


Empty cradle rocking in Time

Slowly she smoothens his dusty clothes,
arranging them in the wooden stand,
along with teddy bears and plastic cars,
never will sparkle his electric wand.

Muted sighs had dried the tears,
her numb world no longer lament,
dragging each day, faking a smile,
trying to frame dispersed moments.

Chaos had suddenly darkened that day,
heavily she paid for their crime,
now grimly watches her forlorn eyes,
Empty cradle rocking in time.

**Written for a another challenge - Karan, a fellow Poet, had tagged me to write about a mother who had lost her only son in a bomb blast.
