FATE ACCOMPLI


Fate Accompli


the old man of seventy five
next to my bed
is trying to solve the unsolved ones
in his un-decipherable murmurs

he seems to be of high stature
in his hey days
the wife and son left him alone
for medical care

he looks for the control key
dangled for so many years
longed for sympathy compassion
he solicited their assistance
to unmask the unsolved mysteries
but with no avail

will it be the fate of all of us
can't go back to my desired time and place
to sort out problems created by us

no second chance to amend our misdeeds
no return of sympathy from them
for whom we spent our youth and thereafter

    Rajkumarda,
    Very nicely expressed. Dark and brooding. And fearful for many in the not-so-distant future.
    I'd like you to read two poems of mine: 'Twas Not A Rose', and 'One Day in The Life of Ivan Gesticulatovich'.
    Cheers.

Poem of the Day

poet Christina Georgina Rossetti

Where sunless rivers weep
Their waves into the deep,
She sleeps a charmed sleep:
Awake her not.
Led by a single star,
She came from very far
