A Long Road.


It is a long road

winding and steep

away from the main

secluded and broad.

 

None prefers to go through

being far and away

the road being  different

aloof and undulating in true.

 

The road less traversed

lies unused for long

a day comes to the play

when it tops up the cross.

 

The lonely road is full of buzz

vehicles go up and down

incessant in  their  plight

has become a famed one in a plus.

 

Being the  path of life as seen

the one which lies low

suddenly rises up to prominence

that be the  choice in a deem.

A Thought Nags


A strange thought crosses my mind

the reason could not fall into any find

could it be a worry of a kind?

 

I forget myself when the thought crosses

as often it could it eludes all causes.

could I locate it after a pause?

 

It haunts me as always and forever so

I stay aghast for a while not in a show

could it extend a great blow?

 

I am worried all the most

I feel the thought is forced

Could I  be better off in its  close ?

The “Pottu”.


Pottu or bhindi in the face

is not a mere trace

it is a  staunch  belief

a custom  with relief

among the Hindus in all

mostly women  follow the call

men do at times place it on the forehead

the kumkum shines   modestly in red

a tradition of Hindu religion for long

has  diffused to the minimum  as if it is wrong

as modern women opt for something light

just a dot  or a pinpoint very slight

almost not visible to the naked eye

why so?  I  ask myself  in tries

Christians wear a cross around  the neck

Muslims wear purdahs  mostly black

not  shy away from their customs to a  cost

Hinduism is an ancient faith

tells us of the values infinite  in straight

vow to adhere to the system  in all ways

an enhancement to the religion  always.pottu

To Cross.


The road so broad and long

looked  very huge and strong

stood at an end in awe

most apprehensive with a tremble.

Halted for a time there

eyes went almost bare

feared to go ahead though

with one foot on the road.

The dilemma surged  in a rave

across to the other side brave

contemplated awhile in fear.

en suite rushed across the lane.

The heart jumped from within

got caught in the midway din

cars honked on either side  mad

feet trembled in a distinct  shiver sad.

The drivers shouted in  bridling anger

cursed me in a  note of stammer

scared  I made way to the opposite

unmindful of the swear and scream.

This way it could be an instance

the road is  a semblance

of life in a wholesome pretence

this being an appraisal of a defence.

cross

As such cross of  the road is  easy

be it accompanied by anything not dizzy

so much so with the life  characteristic

be it engrossed with a serious outlook.

Bearing The Cross


Bearing the cross is Lina’s destiny.

The causes for the happening might be many.

The fault might emanate from so many.

The significant indicator pointed to Lina if not to any.

 

There was an uproar over a mishap.

Lina went there by chance in the crucial lap.

She stood mutely watching the crap.

Quick as a wink she fell into the trap.

 

The main opposition vanished in a second.

The other party was delirious for more than a second.

 Their eyes caught hold of Lina in a fraction of a second.

Accusations overflowed in a spate  within a second.

 

Lina did not understand a thing about it.

Yet she had to face the brunt without knowing it.

She did stand the vehemence with a brave outfit.

She said “I am no way responsible for it”

 

This might be something not of importance.

Lina is not the only catching up with the reference

Lina represents the many who are punished for other’s offence.

The likes of Lina  have to bear the cross in defense.
