Prathibha Nandakumar Poems
If you are searching for that poem written especially for you
you have to remember that writing poems
is like drinking coffee
brewing, filtering, whitening and sweetening
which is actually what happens in courting
But then drinking coffee is like making love
hot yet not scalding
sweet but not too much
Enough but not unlimited
to keep going
Now, if you are thinking what I am thinking
lets have some coffee
The Coffee Table 2
That was no fabled coffee table
Just an ordinary four legs and a glass top
that he would never take credit for designing.
It became a master piece by his touch
And his head resting on it was too much
to handle even for an inanimate thing.
And he wanted me to restrain.
