Portrait

Poem By Parameswaran K V

He was handsome,
bowing under the weight of the cross,
bleeding from the flagellations,
yet pained at the thought
of the people that surrounded him,
for, they ‘didn't know what they were doing.'

He was handsome
as he marched on, step by step,
under the rain of scorns and aspersions
taking in his stride
the sea of sorrow that swelled in him
towards his relentless destiny.

He was the most handsome,
on the cross, hoisted between the thieves
humbling himself before the whole world
and laying down his life for the whole mankind.

Life

Silent and obscure,
Creeping under the bush,
Growing,
Gathering force,

I Stood There Waiting

I stood there waiting
for a gap in the traffic
to cross the highway.

Blessed Are We

Blessed are we
That we are not
Among those tossing in the sea
In little dinghies

I Was Not There

I was not there
when the lilacs bloomed
wriggling in the slime
feeding them with the goodness of the earth.
