Raghavan Warrier Poems
1 Meandering inside the confines of my solitude I asked the forest, which tree is your boundary?
When You Read My Poem
Just read the first line of my poem And if you don’t feel like reading The lines that follow, then maybe Bin it; it isn’t worth the trouble.
Look! Those who win have plastic minds Ready to mould and ready to bend And always taking, a shape that sells.
When I was taken over by desire I consumed myself in the fire Forsake my book of wisdom Forgot the pleasures of freedom.
Along The Ganges
I came to you to “embrace the wings of void”* Like a boat without a sail and oars to guide; Along your banks and away from the crowd You walked me through timeless present
A word and feeling that rolls back a million times Eluding its true meaning; evolving into new feelings. As a child it was the warmth of mother’s bosom
Run Fast My Son, Before It's Too Late
The plot is hatched and the plan is perfect, The ruse is made up and the noose is ready. They are mad, with murder and spite You are sadly, alone in this fight.
On that cursed date As I was getting a little fidgety With my throbbing eccentricity.
Curses In Old Age
During my school days it used to be Commander Mary Who owned me like her Private and made me merry When her rule became oppressive and results depressive I decamped from her regime and jumped from her ferry
Holding the hands of my six year old, Walking through the village lanes Where dreams and myths fuse Into vanishing forms of chameleons.
If I die today and become a ghost tomorrow, Will I be an idle ghost full of sorrow? No I will be a very busy one, And will spare none.
Only Tree In A Lonely Desert
Stingy green Dirty brown
Soothing and gentle your calming presence. Extending your hands To ease the thuds
Worship Of Goddess In Procession Through...
Rein in and bridle your steeds of passion While waiting for glimpse of the divine beauty.
Look! Those who win have plastic minds
Ready to mould and ready to bend
And always taking, a shape that sells.
Willing to love at the click of a button
Eager to leave at the dropp of a hat.
Pretend to accept a load of lies and
Extend in return utter falsehood.
