Winter Garden

Poem By Janaki Nilmini

After the grande finale
Resting like dormant
Stage is empty
But, is it?
Not quite

Some matted leaves
On, still green grass
Some autumn sheds
Colourful as ever
Make a pretty painting

Skeleton bushes
Brown conifer brushes
Invite song thrushes
Where the spider rushes

Wood pigeon still scratches
Nuts, the squirrel yet hides
And magpie treasure hunts
Winter garden, neither empty
Nor dormant
Not quite

Amazing it :)
Wonderfully painted beauty of nature's magnificent winter. Every incident has something to look at and entice to enjoy. Excellent thinking. Thanks for sharing.
An insightful piece of poetry, well articulated and nicely in good diction with conviction. A lovely depiction of winter season. Thanks for sharing Janaki.

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

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.
