#a Board Game

Poem By Mamta Agarwal

Opportunity- a problem in disguise...
Every choice comes at a price,
Demands of you to make a sacrifice.
Weighing the pros and cons, you roll the dice.

Dreams beckon and steer,
Eyes brimming with tears
You have to go through conflict
To move forward in life and uplift.

We really have no one to blame
Life is simply like a board game
Helplessly I watched him agonise,
The decision had not been easy I realised.

The sombre glacier breaks
Eons of its icy silence
As a water fall,

# Conspicuous By Its Absence

While tending to the garden one balmy November,
Helping my mother wash the leaves of the dust,
And gently cut off the dead branches and flowers,
Spraying the ones still seeming bright and robust…
