Leeches

Poem By Ram Krishna Singh

At the end of the day
when I look back and see
my knowledge and insight
rusting with ageing colleagues
I pity my age and wish
to give up; I can't change
the means and ends frustrate
the will to work any more

I want to rest now burying
ambitions and achievements
that ache the soul and make
empty sounds in the hollow
of a hallowed pond long doomed
for marrying self-indulgent
elites and idiots
sucking generations

The river flows through the woods
grown in Banares in centuries
down this terrace they say

Song Of Songs

I'm true in my element
begotten of earth
hungry to mate with sky:

Death Of A Song

In the stillness of morning
hangs fog like smoke veils
her waiting in street

Autumn In The Rain

The faces appearing
and receding in
dark of closed eyes

A Tribute

The world is too big
& my share seems so small
thank God my name’s alive
on the net they can find
