chidananda sali Poems
A typical temple scene - Long queues of devotees and beggars Are proof enough
Your Own Fault
Your Own Fault (Ghazal) Putting the small lamp against gushing wind was your own fault Floating the small yacht against forceful flood was your own fault
And... The days are all tattered and lost in the task Of shining the boots of the wretched world.
Tender Tenders are invited in Sealed envelopes to
When I come for walk In the cool breezy dawn The serpant road’s will Is sleeping still..
A typical temple scene -
Long queues of devotees and beggars
Are proof enough
Here sits an old lady
Sick, frail, struck by leprosy
She is all skin and bones
Abandoned by all, waiting for death to call
