(For Sergey Grichenko*)

Hope lurking

Deep down

Beneath layers

Of solid rock

In the earth’s


Trapped between

The pervious and

The impervious


The Diviner


And Deep down

Beneath thick


Of chapped skin

In the dark


Of the human heart


The steady flame

Of a silent prayer

(Sergey Grichenko was a Ukrainian oil engineer, kidnapped and killed by a terrorist outfit in Assam.)
