Treasure Island

The Silver Swan.....

Living wiling time,
without much note
Women gives willingly!

How many life's more
'Nirbhaya's' will it be
before we learn to respect
the life force,
fragile physically
she needs security!

When life is no-more
living are alive, awakened
what a waste of life
Time that is gone!

The silver swan
was waiting infinitely
nurturing giving endlessly!

The mother who created
thy soul
The wife who protected each home
Why exploit them sexually?

Poet's Notes about The Poem

This post is inspired by the recent turmoil in India around increasing sexual crimes against women, the myth revealed it is not the lower segments who engage in such deeds out of ignorance, it is equally the educated elite class who are engaged in managed social sexual crimes.
Planned and protected deeds.
It takes a lot of steel to challenge them, not a task ordinary!
My effort to support such women, may we succeed in defacing many Tarun Tejpals publicly!

There are women who make things better... simply by showing up. There are women who make things happen. There are women who make their way. There are women who make a difference. And women who make us smile. There are women of wit and wisdom who- through strength and courage- make it through. There are women who change the world everyday... Women like you.”
― Ashley Rice

“All the problem of women, starts with men. All the problem of men, ends with women.”

Poem of the Day

poet Emily Dickinson


"Arcturus" is his other name—
I'd rather call him "Star."
It's very mean of Science
To go and interfere!
