RAVIKIRAN ARAKKAL Poems
MARRIAGES ARE MADE IN HEAVEN
Marriages like the registry Are made in heaven, With the relatives, friends Making earthly arrangements
FOOD, OH FOOD!
I have been chasing that truck, For 2kms, now and I will be dead For the morsel the world cannot reach me, Or the gods that cant make in my soil.
A SOLDIER'S WIFE.
She was married to a soldier, Who left for the camp, A month after holidays, Word coming of war in siachen
She lived alone with her Most precious treasure, A daughter, left by her Beloved who changed her
Pakistan, Pakistan, howw did You get to be like this! Painful is thy condition, With no freedom for your
AIR, OH! AIR! !
You are so gentle And life giver, without you, None, even the plants, flowers, Friuts, and animals can survive,
It was like a snake Which gripped it's prey, Trying to swallow it alive, The pain in the mind
ALL IS FAIR IN LOVE AND LOVE
Man, woman, we should Love all all the time, Instead of mouthing, Hate nothings which
TEARS OF ALLAH
Somewhere in Africa, Or middle east there is A lake, that has pure water Called 'Tears of Alla'
ONAM - FESTIVAL OF KERALA
For ten full days, the people Of Kerala, south of India, Feasted, enjoyed Each others company
He pushe a cart, On four cycle wheels, Filled with fruits, Shouting loudly,
SCHOOL BOYS' SECRET TALKS.
They spoke of love And letters of love Exchanged or given one way, To the girls school's girls,
F O L K D A N C E
The street was lighted, With lighted bulbs in hand, the group moved along With singers, at the back
The neem tree stood tal, And spread out wide, Dark green all over, Giving shelter to passersby,

MARRIAGES ARE MADE IN HEAVEN
Marriages like the registry
Are made in heaven,
With the relatives, friends
Making earthly arrangements
Of beds, flowers, wedding suits,
Feasts, ceremonies, bethrotals
All complete to make
The pair unite in sheer bliss
Living, copulating for
Indescribable years of harmony,
Love, making children,
But now that seperations,
Divorces in huge numbers,
The wedding God and staff
Having a busy schedule,
Late night work of remarriages,
With enough confusions,
Complication, errors to boot
To the normal workstyle
Of yesterages ...
