A Dark World?


A light brown cat comes at every night sure…….;
This cool cat sits comfortably calculating on rat catch;
Then searches for rat here and there round the house;
The house frequented with rat nuisance is free now!

After making a thorough search everywhere it goes away;
What a relief we have from rat menace in the house now!
The clever cat takes some leftover food if no rats are seen;
Natural enmity between rat and cat is proverbial indeed!

We shouldn’t doubt if this cat too can drink milk in kitchen;
This cat is also a sister of big cat like lion and tigers ever;
They are living in the forest but this cat is domesticated here;
Whether in the forest or in the house cat is a carnivorous one!

The cat may think world is dark if eye is closed;
But are we fools to believe world is dark like cat?

poet Pablo Neruda

I want you to know
one thing.

You know how this is:
if I look
at the crystal moon, at the red branch
of the slow autumn at my window,
if I touch
