A Rakhi Present - Poem by Aniruddha Pathak
You want your bhai1 to pen a piece of art
That this struggling pen-pusher may save
A farthing and some face; ah sibling heart,
What gallant of a gift sonnet to have!
A sweet little piece of fourteen fair lines;
And ever since I stare at starry space
To get inspired by Evening Star that shines
But for a brief while with his smiling face.
I’d much rather give an off-the-shelf gift
Than run race with daunting deadlines, to pen
A piece of heart festive spirits to lift,
And so my sis, began I but in vain;
For, it would freeze me more than push for pace,
To face deadlines to me is thankless race.
1. bhai: Or bhaiya (Hindi) for brother.
