Poetry in Our Times
1. Utterance from an Urn
Only when we looked around we saw
A subliminal longing, in an unaccustomed mouth
Birth of lettered rhymes.
2. "A Face Like Ours"
Poetry is a face inviting a peek
A thought that carves the Ajanta grace – a smile, a pause
Poetry’s guest. Liberated words.
3. "Doors vs. Darkness"
Silent waters upon those door frames
The choice is of clarity of shards, not darkness
The face splatters like meters. A welcome chant.
4. "Airborne, We Sing"
Our times is a kite for our hands
To say nothing of the birds. Alphabetic. Soaring
The face, this poetry, defy disbelief of metaphors.
