The Yards Do Create


Hanging up the clothes in the backyard

she heard the gossip that went round the court-yard

one talking about the other who was absent

building up stories of her without any sense

unable to hear further more as all were lies

she went to the front in a fly

while the court-yard resonated with meaningless talks

she decided all of a sudden to go for a walk

away in the fields wherein the drying yard  that lay ahead

she saw birds  flocking and birds  gatheringputting their heads

curious to know what it was fearing not to chase

she noiselessly went to the  place

well there she saw a bird lying in a pool of blood

while the other birds were fondling her with the head

Struck  by the situation at home and here

she walked past feeling ashamed to be there..
