A Poet's Questions!?


Photo: Chaliyar river, Kozhikode
















Like frightened birds
From my pen fly the words.
Where are the branches to perch?
 

Like a string less kite
All wayward in its flight
Why do I hopelessly lurch?
 

Like a midnight flower
I am wilting at this hour
Who has caused me this smirch?

Like an oar less boat
With the current I float.
What are the answers I search?

  1. Very beautiful Ashok! The answers probably lie in exploring with courage, pushing and more pushing, discovering the freedom to make the choices.
