Black Wednesday

My blogger friend, Magiceye , with a touching tribute to those who lost their loved ones, in the terrorist blasts, on Black Wednesday, July 13, 2011.

And they still carry on, in grief, anger,helplessness, and sometimes, just a little bit of hope, thinking that , maybe, one day the sun will shine on the simple, ordinary folks of this city again.

The Mumbai sun
often lingered
longingly at dusk,
orange red
on the horizon,
with a look of love
at a favourite city...

Something else
has now colored
the waters
quiet and lifeless,
ripples blindly carrying on
dashing against
bare rods.

The people carry on
the business of living,
blindly moving.

on so many lives,
the sun has set
without warning.

The nightmare begins.
