Purple Aster

Poem By Janaki Nilmini

Vast areas of perennial garden
Ever so scattered and springtime burden
Here and there and look everywhere
Sure it's gardener's nightmare
Lush green Bushes grow quicker and thicker
Yet no benefits to any honey sucker

But you remember come September
End of summer when gardens murmur
Last feeding for the poor honey seeker
Autumn makes them weary and weaker
Displaying blossoms of glorious cluster
It's the grand finale of Purple Aster!

Liberation Of Mind

Freedom; liberation of mind

Our perceptions of people and world
Often adulterated or skewed,

I Cry For You

From this hotel window
I saw them dragged you away
Cheering and clapping
Proud of their catch

All In The Mind

Often our perceptions
Of people, concepts and world
Are adulterated or skewed
So we see things

Winter Garden

After the grande finale
Resting like dormant
Stage is empty
But, is it?

On Myway To School

I din't travel by bus to school
Neither did my mother driveme there
With my friends and cousins
I had the best of childhood fun


Be it, pauper or king
Mind is the very thing
Through which we live,
Most mysterious and elusive.
