The Countdown Ring Poem by Kesav Venkat Easwaran

The Countdown Ring



Beneath a sky of graying frowns,
Behind a waning moon,
Beneath a group of frozen clouds,
Bereft of raining moods,
Beneath a bunch of aging stars,
Bemused to wink or shine,
Before a sea of stoic waves-
Belongs to shores alien,
Besieged by hostile gang of birds-
Believes in not to sing,
Beside a smiling fate he girds-
Begins the countdown ring

In these days, when some so-called poets divorse all the aids to poetry like alliteration, personification, rhyme, rhythm etc. and present some bland prose-like pieces in the guise of poems, this poem is like a fresh breath of air in sultry weather. All the lines starting with a 'B' and your reference to Nature in a multiple ways are a couple of remarkable features of this poem. Truly well-crafted.

Beneath a group of frozen clouds we see the beauty of waning moon and we feel the mood of raining. Natural perception is excellently brought up. Before a sea of stoic waves a smiling fate will of course rise with beauty of sun. This poem has rich imagery and this is excellent one.
