Best Poem of Prasanna Mishra

Tryst With Life

On the auspicious day
I also took my place
With a stoic frame of mind
Moved inch by inch
As the sluggish python

Catapulted me
To an atoll
of isolation

Peace returned
After a while
I saw him
opening a door
In the rear
To let in
His own men
And women

Saw him
Bedecking them
With garlands
of those
Whose prayers
He had not answered

Hump On The Highway

The dry leaves
Year after year
Have the same message
Conveyed
The stage is for others

Stay therefore
I must
In the cage
