emotion calculates time

eyes counting days

the expected has not arrived

further suffers the soul

words too hard to orchestrate

to express the heart’s bitterness

could simply words represent

unspoken suffering

full moon

appears without words

wanes without news

what remains – suffering

speechless sita

awaits rama

* ayana – “path” or “journey” in Sanskrit
