Treasure Island

Tajudeen Shah

(India.)

Emotional Cadence.


Emotions swelled like Solway
Tides made cadence strange,
Caused us both to loose clutch
Over sane oars of tender passions! .
She has her stand, and
I have mine, Both clash often
In chase of a pacific landing.
It all started off when power went off,
With the humid air invading
The whole house like oozing haze,
Causing irritations sprout like mushrooms.
It all ended after a series
Of matured blather and tears
Consoled, rather pacified the scene,
But the early morning bird had
Her prayers still ON, though
We the ungrateful dived deep
Into soothing slumber.

    When power goes and the night turns humid, the sleep can be disturbed and people tend to get irritated for no reasons! On such times arguments can develop! But they subside and the couple slips back to peaceful slumber to wake up quite late! Such occasional emotional mismatches enhance the bliss of married life! A very interesting write! !
