A Family Today

Poem By Raghurama Raju

My wife settles down on a couch
Checking WhatsApp messages on her mobile!
I'm busy on a sofa in the hall
Chatting with my friends on Facebook!
My grown-up son finds his way into another room
With long wires hanging down his ears!

We, the three, for many years
Live under the same roof as a family!
Since we don't ownthree separate houses
Nor it's wise to engage three cooks!
Now, I learn, it's not just relations
But economic calculations
That keep people together!

Green, most often!
Red and biege, other times!
Colourful and colourless,
Camouflage or something,

The Poetic Art

No, that's not the way
One should compose a poem!
If everybody understands
What's great about it?


What is there,
In that remote village?
Where buses and trains
Never run in your life!

' Dear, Shall we buy a Saree today? '
'No, I do not need at all! I have too many! '
'Darling! You aren't as interested as earlier! '
'May be! One can't bethe same forever! '

We, Men!

We are men.
We don't know how and what women look for in men!
But we know much about ourselves.
We look at women as lumps of flesh


Tiny waves -
In a cool, calm
Serene tank
