The Bird's Final Escape. - Poem by Gangadharan nair Pulingat..

The small bird hid in the cage
Always told in small voice
'Soham Soham' like sounds
There I listened in silence
In night sleep the sound was another
Tick, Tick, the sound vibration
I feeds the bird in time
I give water to the bird frequently
I cared it well almost every day
In slightest difficult I listened it
The bird and I was mutual friends
Inseparable in life as companion
I don't know its genesis
Or I never tried it to know at all
Fearful the bird will fly away
Making me difficult in this world
How fearful without such a close one
I couldn't imagine in my life time
The bird's cage enneadic door system
There cleaning process from childhood
The sacredness it felt altogether
Even in night I prayed for its safety
To keep the bird always in happy
I made myself as a human engraced
But I feared I am engoument to bird
The engrams of words I made salutation
Before a lamp lit in my room
Where my thoughts were for freedom
The good freedom the bird to heaven
The enigmatic world the end of life
And the final outcome of opening cage
After enjoying my gestures it flew
In one evening the bird flew to heights
And the cage destroyed in the fire
Where only a handful of ash is visible.
