Missing Couple - Poem by FABIYAS M V

Beginning unknown:
Still the canoe floated
The calluses paddled.

Sunny days and moonless nights
I have watched them floating
On the river meandering.

The canoe rose and fell
On the wavelets ten thousand times
During the springs.

Black the hairs were;
Many winters passed;
Now snow white being exposed.

Narrow escapes
From the maelstroms unexpected,
And forward floated.

A long voyage; two together;
Funeral feast smells;
They drink to the lees.

A long missing; I think I see them again
Rest under the holy banyan tree;
Empty canoe tied to the tree.
