Life's Like That!

Poem By Raghurama Raju

A butterfly enters my room,
It circles and circles until it tires,
The dazzling light blinds its eyes!

Obviously itlongs to quit the room!
I put out the light and open the window,
The joyful creature flies into darkness!

I close the window and light up my room again!
I hear the scraping sound on the window pane,
A grass hopper scratches the glass with its thorny legs,
It is curious to enter the room!

Life's like that!
The butterfly does not tell the grasshopper,
And the grasshopper does not ask the butterfly!

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!

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
