Witness to Eerie Happenings

a poem by Madan G. Gandhi

In flashes of explosion I see
a million billion crackers burst
in desolate dark of the sky.

The punctured sheen of space unfolds
on eternity’s chequer board,
mosaics in black and white.

Witness to eerie happenings
in vortexed passivity of cosmic deep
billion trillion cosmoses sleep.

The whirling skies
one above the other,
the star systems galore.

In the infinity of space
spangled heavens
are seen expanding in all directions.
