Bronze Star - 5,617 Points (2/2/1981 / kottayam)

Closed bird


I have more than I lift
Not the ego or prophesy
But to wink of my pedigree
Shriek for what past and meddle
I can plant more than deserve
I can pinch all that preserved
Not potential for this time
Tide may take me to some shore
Yet I can pass this tide
I will move in the search of coast
Not lament but the vigor
Bird natter inside a closed cage
But it’s a golden cage
Closed inside; so vividly
Not visible outside; nix to light
Covered the self
Though can fly high
What’s the use?
Small bird quack and fly freely
In that ego the golden bird expired silently! ! !

Poem of the Day

poet Dante Gabriel Rossetti

A little while a little love
The hour yet bears for thee and me
Who have not drawn the veil to see
If still our heaven be lit above.
Thou merely, at the day's last sigh,
