A Day Is Long Enough To Ruminate - Poem by Ananta Madhavan
A day is long enough to make
Some room for rumination,
Even when waiting in a queue
To join the right queue or browse
Over an article or happenstance.
To read a book without interpreting
What we read is fatuous and futile.
For words make sense only if you feel
You are like the author, assaying words.
Anyway, it was good we passed or paused
Or parsed the message differently.
Poet's Notes about The Poem
or listening to music, or even conversing with a familiar friend, we
have to rely on words, but we must know that to understand a message
is to 'decode' it.Language is a code.Every decoding is another
