Pregnant afternoons

I watch as little sparrows
Clutter the hearth
On afternoons of lazy Sun
When the air is pregnant with silences and questions-
Both out of context

The verandah and the hot afternoon air
Both seem sleepless
In a skin -governed air.
I wonder if the sparrow twitter
Crosses the boundaries of home
And that of love..somehow
Becoming clarion and carnivore-
Ready to bite
And be bitten..

Silences and questions both out of context - very deep and meaningful. You always write on a different plane which makes a wonderful reading. :)
