Love And Oppression

Poem By Raghurama Raju

A bright butterfly
landed on a colourful flower
to suck its nectar!
The feeble stem of the flower
bent low and swayed under its weight!

A robust rooster chased a hen
held its crest with its powerful beak
and pressed it down to the ground!

The flower and the hen repented
"If love means authority and oppression
we never want it in our lives! "

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
