Beyond the Night

Watch the borderline changing
The distance of our dreams –
The fire prince of light
Dances in parley with the night
Urging every horizon to wake
To change all our destinies –
As millions of gold birds
Break into the dawn.

Anu Majumdar writes poetry, fiction, YA, non-fiction and was a choreographer. She has been researching Auroville, the experimental city, where she lives. ‘Beyond the Night’ is a series of poems Majumdar has been writing on since 2017. A few of the poem have been published in The Punch Magazine and the Indian Cultural Forum. They are written to leave marks of light in the darkness we travel, a tunnel to carry us to the other side.
