Poetry found in an old fort

I don't have much time to write a proper blog post (but I have some nice chatty posts coming). For now, here is a poem I wrote at Purana Qila, one of Delhi's oldest forts, and some photos of the sights in Delhi that I saw that inspired this poem. Enjoy!

Of forgotten faces
Rest beneath
Ruined stones
Breathless tales
Of Love and Betrayal
Lost to the sword of time
Headless memories
Parading as museum exhibits
Within these hallowed halls
Whispering with voices
Of modern-day lovers
And olden-day songs

Where are the throngs of people
Now, in the settled dust
Of the 15 Delhis that existed

  1. "of modern day lovers
    and olden day songs"

    is a beautiful line!
