The July Triplets - Poem by M.D Dinesh Nair


When leaves fall
We shed our tears for the leaves
And the sighs of the tree go unheard.


Knock at any door.
But if none opens it at all
Why don`t you assume none is there?


The kids going to and coming back from the school -
See, if they are walking to school in the mornings
They are running back to their homes in the evenings!


During the first six months of the marriage the wife listens
During the next six months the husband listens to her and
During the rest of their lives it`s their neighbours who listen to them!


The pilgrims throng the banks of rivers and chant the rites
The meandering thread of water sulks into its graveyard beneath
And the woes of the multitudes never get washed away in the shallow waters.

    THE SIGHS....Amid affected sorrow, no one sees the tears shed silently! These days we see people 'celebrating' a tragedy to capture media attention while their hearts remain far removed! A very meaningful triplet

    ETERNAL IRONY.... reminds me of BLake's School Boy! Going to school drives all joy away, but coming back from school opens the door for outdoor games and frolic

    THEY ALL LISTEN.... A very interesting observation! These triplets give food for thought and enjoyment!
