Winter Babies

Poem By Janaki Nilmini

When icy winds blow
And the nights are long
Grey seals haul ashore
For Pups to be born
Fluffy, white and furry
On the brown sandy beach
Not the best camouflage
Seems very strange
But, they say
It's a relic from the ice age
When Pups born on snow

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.
