And I Became A Child Again


Recently when I got a week full
having no hurry to carry
my children for tuition
or to carry my self to the office
I thought it would be all better
to take leave from
the all poetry too.

My prayer sincere I found
was sanctioned
as I did not feel
much pressure from my pen to write
more and more poems
like a salesperson dying
for achieving sales target.

The ringtone of my poetry is
basically sad
and I know that
my poems are lava of
my erupting unhappiness.
So, I had no pressure to write means
I was feeling happy.

That's the secret
I am trying to share with you
that searching readable in bookshelf
I explored stories of Birbal
a courtier both wise and witty
of the Mughal Emperor, Akbar
and read it enjoying almost like a child
once again.

Poem of the Day

poet Sara Teasdale

Only in sleep I see their faces,
Children I played with when I was a child,
Louise comes back with her brown hair braided,
Annie with ringlets warm and wild.
