The Play Of Rain


NHang-dryot knowing when the rains would come
hung the clothes to dry in the sun shine
As had no work went to sleep in the bedroom
I slept like a log and the time was nine.

I got up after I heard the calling bell.
Drawing the curtains found to my dismay
that it had been raining like hell.
I ran towards the yard in an array..

The clothes were soaked in water.
Took them and placed them in the dryer.
After wrenching every drop of water
hung them once again in the open yard near the foyer.

The sun had come out fully and shining.
As there was no sign of rain anymore
went out with my friend who had come calling.
Spent some time with her in a shop called Baltimore

Spending a few hours with her made my way home.
Lo! the rain clouds were again gathering fast
chiding myself I hurried back home
hoping to reach home before the rains start

I had been a few minutes late and the rains had come.
This time it was a thrash and a torrence.
My clothes were once again drenched wholesome
forcing me again to carry the work in all reverence.

Humor At Large.


The girl in pink
wrote a letter in ink
asking her friends to think
not to merely blink.

Her friends failed to do
as they were a lazy duo
could not think in a flow
but gave each other blows.

The girl felt dull
as she could not pull
her friends from the null
as they flopped full and full.

She let them go
to a place of snow
where the standard is below
so that they could learn slow.

Shopping In Length.


malls.small shops.online shopping.

Shops big and small
shops on pavements
sell goods for a call
high and low.

The belief is so
that big shops
deal with quality in the go
selling branded ones.

The mind-set is so
that small shops
handle mediocre goods in a row
transacting unknown products.

There is one more belief
tha giant malls price
the goods high with no relief
and tax more.

l
With that goe well
the convincing thought that
small shops sell
for reasonable price.

I believe not these beliefs.
To me shopping is a skill
as to find the quality and tariff
altogether in one go.

Such discriminations
are frivolous and childish
as there are exhibitions
to select and choose.

Small shoppers have
personal touch while
high-end shopping markets enslave
bereft of this intimacy..

Shopping has become a relaxation
a mechanism and automatic
with the online introductions
getting everything at home.

Long ago it was literally
seeing, feeling
and buying virtually.
a lengthy process.

Later on it became’
seeing in hurry and
buying in hurry like a game
a quick procedure.

Now it is express speed
seeing through websites
placing orders online instead
receiving them at home.

There is a change
not in shopping alone
but in every sphere in a range
from medical to learning.

Arithmetical Game.


The time was short and terse
The task was great and hard
The ratio being inverse.
needed attention not slip shodratio.

Not only attention in terms straight
but required undue proficiency
The ratio being direct.
one balancing the other in efficiency.

Life is a calculation
of add ups and deficits
The prowess to solution
lies in our hands still. explicit.

Applying the principle
of arithmetic in proportion
the task of fulfilling the valuables
becomes an easy disposition.

The Old Man And The Children


Standing in the gate
an old man was watching
the cars plying up and down
pedestrians walking to and fro.

He stood there
for a time little more
caught a glimpse of
a school bus .

The children saw him standing
waved to him lovingly
gave him flying kiss
through the air.

The old man happily
waved back to them
with eyes wet
went back home.

This has been
his daily routine
for years together
which keeps him going.

The lovely children
who wished him first
would have grown
into handsome adults.

The continuity goes on
year after year non stop
with the children going
in the big bus to school.
