Aniruddha Pathak Poems
This Game Of Golf
The game of golf nigh like this life, Though played all life perfect can’t be, The game of golf like player’s wife, Now on pedestal, now on tee,
The joy of giving
Be it no more than a glass of water, A living walking stick played by daughter, Care and concern, warm smile, none too hotter;
Better to enjoy journey Than in triumph to arrive, One on the way is alive, Death there is in destiny,
Faith and reason
Today’s man of science e’er on the move, Deprived of faith, re-supplied with reason, The reason is why robbed he is of love, Faith chokes and love starves in his new season.
Some say, beauty is but an opinion Wrapped in wafer thin layers like onion, Had it been heftier a fact, It would be e’er the more perfect;
Joy is the way
Slow and serene when I walked at the jheel1, Sporting upon my lips a pleasant smile, Relaxed to core and deep at ease to feel, The weary thoughts were left behind a mile.
Fourteen beautiful birds on wings
A baker as packs thirteen eggs to claim A good dozen, a sonneteer— fourteen Sweet lines in praise of thine slender good frame, That thine mysterious marvels never lean
The murder most foul
The meanest murder minus of machete, Overwhelming greed blamed, sole bleeding knife; Who held the knife? Manic men of market? Fair lady herself—too much freedom rife?
There Are Books and Books, But
A book loud and loose if not lusty, Read and re-read to the last page, Dog-eared oft gets but scarce dusty, And dies of torn limbs ere her age!
The spirit of sports
Sports no more let the air breathe light, Nor make laughter look somewhat bright, No more do sports entertain right, May be the spirit is laid
Summer solstice again, sun at its bright, At summit making longest day of light, A lover’s date lingering till late night, Leaving far behind looming wintry plight.
Build A Loo Ere Ye Woo
Imagine if every village beau Wedded be to wisdom in her view: ‘Open to nature loo ‘Henceforth would never do’,
Nirvana on earth
Imagine an infant by mother’s breast, An adult at orgasm’s rarest crest, Imagine one caught in juvenile jest, And one in grave at last— life’s tranquil rest,
Death When Challenged Life
Death once told poor life defeated by life: Life’s no life if lived as if on the edge of knife, Surfeit with struggles, nor if soaked in strife, Do ye know how many deaths is Death rife?

This Game Of Golf
The game of golf nigh like this life,
Though played all life perfect can’t be,
The game of golf like player’s wife,
Now on pedestal, now on tee,
On roughs, on toughs, handicaps, bogies, strife,
Ah, played as if on edge of knife!
Easy to start, hard enough to finish,
And harder yet forever to master,
Pursued and practised like unfulfilled wish,
And always one stroke ‘way from disaster.
As in life in game, handicaps to cap,
Clap for birdies, try still eagles each lap.
What a rage be the game played every age,
With many a high and as many...
