Different Worlds


The empty chair

The hardened ball point pen

The diary sighing over the white pages left

Rows of eager books on the shelves

The bone-china cup with a smiling Mickey

The brocaded salwar-suit

The Kolapuri sandal


The neighborhood birds

Miss her


Stoic rock

Sits on the Atrayee* bank



*A river in our hometown



Posted for Poets United Midweek Motif ~ The Inanimate And The Non-Human

Our State Will Go To Poll Shortly


Black days to arrive soon

When will ensue

Battle of words

Wrong, right

Serrated and Blunt

By Right and Left

To lull the people

Into bizarre numbness

Dazed mass will vote

Ballot boxes

Will be in the limbo of a lull

Tough times ahead
