chelliah pandian


love


When a man takes his boat
to catch a fish
in the middle of a night
with the burden of a smiling wife
staying awake hoping
for him to bring a fish or two
so that their three year old son
could eat something and sleep
an angel in the sky
dies to become a fish
and swims into his net
to die again


If you could love me today
like you would love me tomorrow

poet Paul Laurence Dunbar

The mist has left the greening plain,
The dew-drops shine like fairy rain,
The coquette rose awakes again
Her lovely self adorning.

The Wind is hiding in the trees,
