Rookie - 15 Points (7TH OCTOBER 1951 / Trissur, Kerala State, India.)


We had taken the full life,
In our stride for a long time,
finding some differences
which we din't know
Why they occured,
Inflaming our life together
For argument's sake
we parted our ways,
Like you said, now we have
New partners more unbearble
Not understanding ourselves,
Why, diid we part, for
Paltry reasons, when we shared
So many dyas, nights together,
We now know, we were
Cruel to each other,
After sharing such long years,
Together, in happiness and sadness.

Amongst the flowers I
am alone with my pot of wine
drinking by myself; then lifting
my cup I asked the moon
to drink with me, its reflection
