Lemonade & Cappuccino

The petrichor of the time linger

As we two strangers depart that eve.

We were to be acquaintances

But we remain what we were.

Hidden words in your eyes

Unspoken in my eyes

Hum the silence deepening it.

You sip on soda lemonade

Me on the cappuccino.

Say something speak something

We said to each other all the hour

Psithurism of busy cafe

Played the harmony.

A poet, an author, a reviewer--in one word I'm a literaturist (means one who is trying almost everything that Literature is made of). My books are available at Amazon. I'm a Bengali, born and raised in Kolkata, West Bengal.


  1. cryptic poetry. the kind I like best. I wonder if choice of beverage reflects character? feelings of uncertainty and treading gently are reflected in your words.


    1. I think yes the choice of beverage reflects some traits of each individual’s character…like lemonade can means not-so-stressed life while cappuccino reflects the opposite or the former is showing relaxed regarding the meet while the later was tired but he needs the boost to look relaxed…anything can be deduced…thanks for making me rethink on my thoughts…and apology for this late reply…
