Bharati Nayak

Here I - - - - -Write A Poem - Poem by Bharati Nayak

When life goes heavy
With jagged trivialities
Burdensome with bossy anxieties
Feel like some dictators dictating
Every move my step takes
From how I prepare an omelette
To what I watch on T.V.
Mind becomes jam packed
With endless sermons
From all directions
Every one clamors for a right
To give me an advice
I try to breathe
Fresh air
To wriggle me out
From the clumsy mess
And to stand in the golden sunlight
Of the morning sun
And inhale the sweetness
Of a flower of new bloom.

    Some poets face an occupational hazard: we tend to overthink things, but we are born to do this work of rumination. to prepare for radiant moments that we share in words. Your way of WRIGGLING OUT FROM THE CLUMSY MESS has an added advantage: it imparts sinuosity to your turns of phrase. Beautiful phrases require strength that comes from this hard work of wriggling. Reading your recent comments, I hear a new note in your voice. For instance, Bri Edwards wrote a poem about Sheila and Clifford, and your comment says SHEILA AND CLIFFORD GOING IN THE FAMILY WAY. For me, that phrase is so refreshing, so full of sympathy and understanding. My personal theory is that felicitous expression is a reward for your selfless efforts to understand and appreciate others. Once on a website where people tell their life stories, I stumbled onto your comments under the name BHARATISPEN. Someone who cares about others' life stories will surely be rewarded with these moments in the sun. That is the golden currency we are dealing with. (Report) Reply

    A real life situation especially Indian Women embrace this situation mam. When I face this kind of pressure I would like to make it clear to them that I am capable of doing but then the fear of misconception that I would leave upon their minds would make me reluctant only to outburst at some point.
    The solution you have provided in here is awesome ma'am!
