Lighthouses – Yamamoto Taro


Lighthouses resemble poets
watching only perilous things-
a storm in the centre of the wind
or an approaching tide

Poets resemble lighthouses
experiencing anguish
they build their solitude

Because their light
is always stolen by the distance
their interior
is deeper than any darkness.
– Yamamoto Taro

I usually write in my mother tongue Gujarati and sometimes in Hindi and English. Nehal’s world is at the crossroads of my inner and outer worlds, hope you like the journey…
