Minnoor srinivasan Poems
A School Boy's Wonder
Temple elephant All made in ivory It makes me wonder. Gandhi in the calendar
Fish, at their own sweet whim Softly glide, move and swim, Colors feasting frenzied eye, Make also fine attire simply
The Prattled Panchavarna Parrot
The parrot prattled The mass and the elite Gathered around. The parrot uttered:
Still the mind Instill the mind big In still mind You will find
How Dharma Charka became Dharma Chakra
The dignity of India is hit. India is sobbing helplessly, As the ruthless hands of Dussasan, the villain called ADHARMA
Sect And Insect
Where knowledge is free Horizons extend! Brother and sister In that ever-extending space
Rainbow Is it the banner or festoon hung in the heavens, glorifying the rain? When the sun-light and the rain-filled clouds embrace - Perhaps the fond impress has brought the color-pattern!
Dream and Scheme
Meet and mingle Never be single Me and mine seeds of Ego!
Exist Find Exit
On the seashore Crabs galore Crawl and crawl One and all.
The sun beam flows mellow As tides of saffron yellow Bathing the lotus in pond; Still stands enchanting
Lit the Lamp
In the heart-cave illusory Darkness resides. The cave is grim in grave silence. Lit the lamp of Meditation.
The Swinging Soul
The question put to me By myself is this: Who writes poetry? Is it the silence in you?
Dust bin dust bin Put the rubbish in Throw not elsewhere!
Eloquent in Dreams
Love! Is it ogling glance Or a strange trance! Love - mere word, To conjure up, a word of the dream world!

A School Boy's Wonder
All made in ivory
It makes me wonder.
Gandhi in the calendar
Laughs with a question.
Proud possession –
The ivory casket
Sheltering the costly
Makes me wonder!
My grand pa’s
With a grand grip
Carved in ivory
Bewitches the beholders,
As my grandpa
It makes me wonder!
My uncle presented
Me a tiny toy elephant
Resembling the stately
Man uses Nature
For his needy or greedy ends?
