Ratnakar Rout

Rookie - 4 Points (28th August 1961 / Village-Boita, District-Balasore, State-Orissa, Country-India)


Mob rush every where
Entice the onlookers
Swelling up
Crowd in the sands
Crowd in the woods
Crowd puzzles everyone
The temple, the market
The road, the park
Crowd throngs everywhere
Though nothing enthralling is there.

As their thirst is not quenched either
A lone passer by quips restlessly at a safe distance
Witnessing the anxiety of the commuters.
Sound builds, sound breaks
Sound pollutes the atmosphere
Sound is God, which emanates from within
And enthuses the crowd
That sprouts of the vocal chord
And bearable to the eardrum
Can anyone stay peacefully at any place?
When crowd is unmanageable
And sound intolerable

poet Emily Jane Brontë

I am the only being whose doom
No tongue would ask no eye would mourn
I never caused a thought of gloom
A smile of joy since I was born

In secret pleasure - secret tears
