A Rhyme Without Time


To the boil

came a foil

in an untold toil

not from the soil

but from the coil

the fire broke out

spread in and out

went up in sprout

it was a rout

with that came out

an expected fall-out

the man stood stout

walked as if he had a gout

had a  big doubt

could not clear it out

so  went back  home.

The Foil


The foil  thin and transparent

  could be seen through  being apparent

having a silvery shine and glow

the tenacity it has in a flow

could hold all things in one go

be it heavy, light, mild or sticky in row

never giving out its content

closely holding them with intent

an easy  pack to carry in hand

essentially disposable when thrown in sand

that is what we human do unmindful

discarding that has served us in full

never a thought crosses and holds back

down it goes into the drain  all into the track

clogging the outlets thick and stock

that has taken me away from the talk

about the foil in the regular run

it is always my way not in fun

coming back to the topic in short

have to conclude thus in a  bought tin-foil

the foil though being very meagre in merit

has a lot to be sung to its credit.

 

Step Up Lina.


Lina, for all I know, had a setback that day.

It kept Lina locked for a day.

She sat speechless the whole day.

She was not her usual self that day.

 

Lina,all I know, is invincible.

She had overcome events terrible.

She faces disasters with spirit credible.

But that day she was inconsolable.

 

Lina, for all I know, is of a stern stuff.

She never in exasperation huff or puff.

She is not a snobbish vain  buff.

But, that day she was terse and gruff.

 

Lina ,for all I know, is a girl of pride.

She carries  herself with a charismatic glide.

She speaks in an unleashing stride.

But that day she was in a low tide..

 

Lina, for all I know, is a lovely angel.

She is a dainty, kind angel.

She is a sweet-tempered angel.

But, that day she was looking like a fallen angel.

 

Lina, for all I know, is a private person.

She behaved  with an idealistic  reason.

She is a flower of all seasons.

But, that day, she was  in enormous tension.

 

Lina, I know not your turmoil.

Could you not create a foil?

Could you not put an end to this toil?

Lina would come out of it without a soil.
