The General Rule

The rose is rosefemale_muscle-11 mostly
there are roses in all colours too
the general rule goes
with rose being rose in colour.

Arguably the generality is accepted
rose brings to mind the colour rose
so do any issue that go by the rule
the majority claims the dominance.

Poems, as all believe go well with rhythm and rhyme
there are others called blank verse
profess equal charm and melody as a song
give a musical form and tone in all.

Boys, by the term are mischievous
boisterous to the very essence
there are few exceptions to the general
the ones who are meek and mild.

Girls are dainty like petals
soft and pretty like a flower
a few tend to be a challenge to the form
with structure heavy and massive.

The general claims a validity
with the numerical advantage in the run
that might not be all pervasive
as exceptions find their way close.


The Ethics

The ethics tell
not to spite and bite
there rings a ethics_stabs bell


The Indian Diet.

A lot of supplements in the diet
with spinach and roots
leafy and fresh vegetables
the nuts and fruits in proportion
enrich the food with nutrition
also with calcium and vitamins
necessary for the growth and health.

The spices and condiments in ratio
make us live with cheer
destroying the infections that arise
with the pollution at large
and immunity a way away
re equipping the body with vigour
that too building a resistance
able to fight any physical discomfort.

The diet has to be balanced
with sweet and sour equal
along with spicy and bitter
comprise the Indian diet thali
with boiling in the maximum
and frying a little less
propose a feature of excellence.


The Wretched Lady

She calls me now and then over phone
brief she would talk at times
lengthy she would go most times
talking of events of past
telling of details present
all with precision abrupt.

She expects a listening patient
traces our distraction
offended she becomes at this juncture
shoots a retort in the quick
closes down the phone in anger
an act of rashness all the more.

She lives away from all friends and relatives
most do not wish to communicate with her
for fear of behaviour harsh
as she goes on with fiery swear and curse
breaking into sobs and cries loud
wretched she seems to be then.

Unless she mends her ways
none would renew stress-cartoonthe ties
her tempers always on the rise
unpredictable and scary
force even the closest to run away
poor lady she has to start anew.


Got Stuck in The Middle

stuck-in-the-middleThe feel of disgust got me in the middle
with the affairs moving as smooth as a fiddle
there arose a hurdle that posed a block
releasing an unpleasantness that locked
the flow of the events to a halt.

Stuck up in between the frontier and dernier
knew not how to negotiate and lift the barrier
stood aghast with the thought of remorse
deliberating how to bring into force
an action that would go ahead.

Resolved to plunge into the core
organized a meet of four
who would check out the drawbacks
allegedly could bring the movement back
a restoration is to be envisaged.

The effort directed a forward move
with things falling into the groove
with that the obstacles slowly were overcome
paving the way to a successful outcome
realised a fulfillment on the way.


Win Or Fall

Win or fall
be it in fields all
has a or fall


The Results on Board.

The results cause anxiety
the medical one triggers pain and relief
the academic result brings a win or a fail
the others come under many categories
all in financial and business
that claim an asset rich or a liability striven
the election which comes periodically
seals the nation’s destiny for a duration
that of sports raises a pressure at moments results
where the fans lose their lives while hearing
all these diagnosis stay for a short period
mostly forgotten as the times pass with the days.



Bicycles have been there for long
superseded by vehicles automatic and fast
still hold a charm
that out beats any other new conveyance.

Cycling through the lanes
get past the people on the walks
an exercise that fills the heart with fresh air
toning the muscles on the go.

The Sun Not Awake

sun not awakeThe sun still not awake
though it is six in the morning
the bustle almost not found
the morn looks sullen.

The sky is down cast
darkness hovers over
rains would come
a sign of welcome.

The day advances
still no move of the sun
peculiar it appears
something amiss is on the way.

Slowly the sun comes out
shines as bright as ever
even hotter than the usual
could be a tongue in cheek attitude


The Aunts of Mine

A beautiful day it is
the mind looks wonderful
nothing much to think about
as usual retrospecting
got stuck at one point
back to the days of my aunts
they were four altogether
knew them for their loveliness
the eldest being short in stature
tall in her decisions
spoke in form and authority
humorous and practical
a favourite of mine
the second one wasaunt not serious in anything
a spendthrift and very kind
the third one was quiet and went about her way
while the last aunt was petite and soft
hurting none spoke in whispers
the clan of mine now dead and gone
still rush back to me when I am alone
keep company with me spelling out love and care.
