Indira Renganathan


Ability-2 Poem by Indira Renganathan


Vagabond the husband..
Job to job, place to place
Loitering in unsteady wandering
His own wishful ideology

Towed wife followed in silence
Dragged to get abraded
Of frequent packing and unpacking

Fueled his reasonless loathing routine
Smoldering her sparkles to rupture
Bursted the female heart one day

On decision of no divorce
Her silent angst but to settle
An occupation and destination
Permanent for herself

All with blessed guts she scored
Raising high her children
Her status, her house..a happy home

And her vagabond hubby...
A regular sunday-visitor
Hosteling to relish her

'Jansi Rani'(I call her so) ..
Her clever silence is composed
For her daughters, for their marriage
So not to break her own wedlock

    That's being Clever.... than Courageous
    An intelligent look into History and Current
    Surely reveals whats there in store and not to hop
    The one who can adjust in the given carpet
    Surely to reap enough yeild.

    Better to be aside the fire pan
    Than being fried on an open ground
    At summer, fire irritates
    At winter it warms up

    Cool thoughts....
    I don't know... how many agree...
    But... is a simple fact.

    Good subject... good read. (Report) Reply

    really sad such relationships also should continue...though all other relationships are not
    breakable by law..this relationship between husband and wife is the most creative in life..so
    sad it should continue as a responsibility...this does not truly nurture the children....a thought provoking poem mam...10 (Report) Reply
