A Homage

I open my window to let in the morning light and the cool fresh air
Though in the midst of a legion of works assigned for the day
The girl servant next door fills my heart with her innocent smile
Like a pure dew drop glares from the grass-top in the dawn

The Bull

Every day I saw him tied to the mango tree
Like man is held fast to life with the cord of endless ambition
I saw in those dying dusks affection glittering in his gazing eyes

My Mom

I was a part of your body for two hundred and eighty days
A full time parasite sucking away all your blood.
Causing numerous ailments, tension, stress and strain
Despite all these you didn't feel a bit of hatred for me mom?

Child And Mother

"Loss of mother is death of the child"
No compensation can make up the loss

All privileges of childhood are denied to him

In Search Of A Goddess

Every dawn is dear to me.
It's then that I see her blushes
reflected in the eastern sky.
While I wander here in her search

The Ektara

The old EKTARA is lying half burned
among the wastes in the street corner
Like a disowned corpse in Manikarnika
