Best Poem of Padmanabhan Ananth

Poem, Must You Rhyme?

Very many tutors of poem
Say poems need not really rhyme
They need not have any metre
Nor even a basic structure

Poems, say some others
Should flow free like rivers
Unfettered by old-world rule
Untroubled by strict model

And poets shouldn't feel shackled
By complex laws and formulas
They be free to express views
Any other opinion is bedraggled.

I read some modern poems
By so many varied poets
Some prose into parts dissected
Others long text not even divided!

I'm quite in wonderment: how can
Anyone call something's a poem? ...

His Waiting Lounge

He remembers vividly, his retirement speech
One streamer broke loose by pedestal fan's breeze
And flew down on his face, as if to caress
For all that he did at work and career, such praise

He reminisces the speeches - some true, some sham
The silver memento still wrapped in cellophane
Squats in a corner of his almirah - hardly noticed
O'er score-n-half years ago - so long in past!
