(June 15,1942 / Aravayal, karaikudi, Tamil Nadu, South India)

The Fallen Flower

The lotus flower, while holding the stock,
Gets patronage from water and the sun.
Once dislodged, it decays in water
Or wilt under the sun; no more patronage.
Fallen from fortune, one goes unwanted
To the family and the society.
[the simile is borrowed from a Tamil classic]
