Preordain - Poem by Tiku akp

The sun has lost its glow
Trees stand like mute witnesses
Since years usurping their
Own shadows; must you come
Draped in a film of nubile
Inhibition; sound of feet
Tapping concrete may get
Lost in thickness of wet clay;
You should not wear a nose ring,
Parting in hair should run
A little to the left of head;
Edge of the sari should rest
On the right shoulder flat;
Pigeons should not be shooed
Away from roof tops in a hurry;
The fortune teller is worried
As Virgo is not going to meet
Scorpion in the terrace of love;
The rose is tilting to the north
Due to high southern wind.
You must flow with time to
Remain daughter of the night
Before you get burnt in the pyre.
