Love In The Clippings


A whiff of seditious wind
Clipped the tender, wings of Love.

Autumn’s crude chill already
Stayed, residue, in my heart, for some time,

‘Rue not’! My, yet to be softened
dictates pacify.

Kiwi! Kiwi! Kiwi! Sparrow, young chick
Concomitant visitor in my balcony;

A whiff of seditious wind
Clipped the tender wings of

This Lonely, this lugubrious,
Swoops on my shoulders,

Peck of look, affection,
‘’ learn to love thyself, ’’

I tend my flexible cuticles,
Fingertips, taps, on the key board.


Unlock the key board,
‘Work is thy Love, ’ is the key.

Keep it unlocked, for ever.
Kiwi! Tap! Tap! on the board.

S.Radhamani.

Poem of the Day

poet Robert William Service

Just Home and Love! the words are small
Four little letters unto each;
And yet you will not find in all
The wide and gracious range of speech
Two more so tenderly complete:
