Competitions —Tanka


The competitions irk

being  not of a healthy  one

a  trendy jerk

judging  by  not talent  alone

not always impartial.

Ode To Living


Living in cities all the year

robs you of your cheer

living in villages and towns

allows you not frown.

 

It would be strange to read this

if you write down a list

the pros would exceed

the cons would recede.

 

Many would not agree with me

as to them cities redeem

being a place of  fantasy

they could pass the time easy.

 

They have many outlets  gigantic

their life moves on in a rhetoric

they greet each other with no feel

everything to them is a deal.

 

They dress up in colourful  attire

seem to be busy even after they retire

their  life  is money nothing more

the city lives with a roar.

Those in town are occupied

they live together unified

never they are showy  and proud

participate  in all not loud.

That of the villagers as known

simple and helpful they are in tone

know not money as a strength indomitable

spirit to them is the most reliable.

The soul lies in the villages as found

they  are rustic but have knowledge sound

their life is a song with a rhythm sweet

remarkable like the birds tweet.

A Public Activity.


It is an activity public

could lead to an intrigue

a microscopical view

would find new

the small blemish

would furnish

a scope for controversy

though not impressive

cause an unwanted  flutter

the litigants stutter

let not it perturb you

it  needs no  attention undue

go about in your way

could be the call of the day.2007_Cuba_Castro
