Poem By Janaki Nilmini

When we are still, our thoughts are calm
Do not make us insane, plead the rhythmic waves
I've seen your history, destruction is your fame
We are equals, respect each other, said the mighty earth
Do not humiliate me, Ophelia did so once
It's not fair, the fireball cries in shame
A battle among the elements is hazardous
Beware! Warns Aether, the celestial observer
Colourless, odorless and invisible as I am
And, labeled as a female, my identity is in crisis
Only when I am in action, you take notice of me
Yes, this is my fame and it is my game

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.
