Eternity

In the Bay of Bengal, a cyclone brewed,
the soft eastern sands remembered the fear,
from Chennai to Puri, a dark eye moved,
a headless death god, his shadow drew near.
Her grey hair tangled in a brine-kissed gale,
she stepped deeper into the churning sea,
red crabs shuddered, the lone raven turned pale,
trapped in wrinkled skin, was eternity.
They say it rained, clouds wailed for thirteen nights,
an aching dirge through the holes in the sky,
the wind howled, the water cringed at the sight,
the storm on its knees, just kept screaming why.
Memories severed from that broken heart,
rose over the grey ocean, free at last.
