Song Of The Season


Shortlisting my dreams
I drop costly car
for a car

Beautiful bungalow
for a cottage

Expensive things
for cheaper ones

and everyday I repeat
this never ending process
searching a match
for my affordability.


There is no hope imminent
in the horizon
to fuel up
my desires.

I am practicing
more arithmetic
to locate
a foothold
for my shrinking ability.

Presently
a free fall
is the song of the season.

Poem of the Day

poet Dante Gabriel Rossetti

Know'st thou not at the fall of the leaf
How the heart feels a languid grief
Laid on it for a covering,
And how sleep seems a goodly thing
