When The Baby Cries To Giggle.................. - Poem by lalitha iyer

the baby cries
with a single syllable
you wonder upto skies
and offer all things and lies

you offer pen
it asks to write
you write on palm
it wants to lips

you offer a flower
it shrieks for more
by the time you add
it swallows down the bud

you show the moon
if it is not noon
it looks down to earth
and want it to come to path...

you whistle to distract
it cries for mews of cat
you elephant become
it kicks you at horse speed

all tired, when you are done
then you realise the play
the child was crying for attention
nothing in focus, but only added attention.........
