Vinod Kumar

Rookie (kannur-kerala-India)

Birds in The Battle Field

Fire pouring missiles
falling one by one
All are running
Here and there

Voise of Ambulance
Noise of crowd and cry
Luckily become the
Green lawn as Red

Disrupted roads
Demolished Heads
Protest with bodies
And sholder missiles toys

In a lonley dry tree
Little birds are weeping
The mother collecting patiently
The half burned grains.

    This is a very good poem Vinod - you have captured the essence of war quite succinctly. It has the quiet surety of a Rupert Brooke - who is, as you may well know, one of the most respected of 'War poets.'
    Please have a read of my 'Running for Cover' and give me your opinion. Many thanks and well done!

    Voise of Ambulance
    Noise of crowd `n` cry

    Guns and tons of memories........Well written.The Kharasch Effect of representing war crimes considered to be fair.. (Report) Reply

    The panick, the sadness, the desolation.
    I hear it all in this poem.
    Such over whelming sadness.

    This is rather good and I appreciate the attention to spelling and grammatical structure. Something that many of your countrymen ignore. May I point out that 'voice' has a 'c' and I think you may have meant 'shower of missiles’. Please read mine - Time For Another -

    Very humane poetry…against uncalled for and unnecessary violence/war for vested interests strangling human rights…the day may come when the tears of birds will get parched up like humans … thanks for sharing …

    Wodrs appear so simple
    But emotions so complex.

    How many care to look up the tree
    From where falls the shower of grief.

    Blessed are those who are laid on the ground
    Left behind.. are left with so much to sigh and cry.

    Touched by this read.

    Thank you. (Report) Reply
