The Evening Tea.


The lights were switched on
every  corner  was illuminated
 the garden became  bright.
The breeze flowed gently
 there was a drizzle
and the moon was posted steadfast.
turned out to be an enchanting evening
 We gathered around for tea.
chatting and chuckling.
 The table was laid with 
Crisp vadas
 sizzling   samosas 
Gulab jamuns and hot tea.
Biting the vada dipped in chutney 
 and nibbling the samosas
we talked  myriad subjects.

 

The recent election in Tamilnadu
 where a nonagenarian and
an ailing woman  contested.
How money played the trick?
 the manoeuvres of both
were exposed  in spirited speech.
Economics found its way
 analysing how  the bear and the  bull
 are  fighting   at Dalal Street.
Swamy’s dig at Raguram Rajan
and Rajan’s inclination to quit.
The movies and their impact on the people
 came up in a rush.Rajini and Kamal
  as college goers at the age of sixty.
Meanwhile, the table became empty
as we unknowingly have gobbled
 all that had been laid.
The night grew dark.

The Parrot Green


Parrot in green

talks with a glowing beam

likes to team,

 

Parrot so talkative

comes out with an initiative

nothing in  relative.

 

Parrot sodesktop-hd-green-parrot-bird-images squeaky

known for being always chirpy

looks very happy.

 

 

What is in The Name?


His name could be best translated

literally would give no meaning

if done i n a skillful elaborate

would be one  very redeeming .

 

Better I settle with the  basics

being he a man with evil eyes

his  characteristics  are tragicomic

he is a man all very dicey .

 

Thinks he is royal and  brainy

talks with an air of pride

feels he is a conqueror  really

his wife befits her  role  with a glide.

 

Both together bring down the sky

their trash too has a value

their eyes emit a  look of sly

any a time  they would dare you.

 

Short and foxy the duo combine so well

sing their praise in an alternate   text

they being the couple who dwell

along with their in laws in a the house next.

 

Astonishing to find the whole family similar

the in laws are on the same wave as they

say they come  from a prestigious family  familiar

listening to them day in and day out is not one of gay.

 

 

 

A Woman Out Of Sense


The talk goes on and on  for decades

could be  true or false in a facade

I know not anything beyond  the core

that be of a business all the more

somewhat an exaggeration  in phases

a woman tells of her husband with pride

as if he is the greatest business tycoon on ride

she  has to entertain people who come to see him

being not one or two but scores of them as much

finds no time for other chores as such

all these of a man who is a small timer  not known

does a few transactions in money lending in phone

dwells in a small town all through the days

charges an interest heavier than usual

sits on the patio of the common  family house

shouts and screams in a voice with double throat

the wife being one a little out of sense totally

always speaks high  of herself and her family

exasperated I heard the same from one of my relatives

who reported the version with a pinch of salt

I  walked away with a disgust as hearing these is a fault

the way they spin the yarn for years together

provokes anger and anguish altogether stock-photo--girl-in-an-image-of-the-madwoman-of-the-zombie-for-a-holiday-halloween-87776257

the world is made of such people in a majority.

 

 

Love Talking To Myself.


Love talking to myself

the practice I had from young

inquire and reply  all by myself

bothers none else in strong.

 

My mother  got upset  for no reason

scolded me  a lot all the more

she thought it to be a treason

others  would think I am insane  all the more.

 

I confined my sojourn to my room

talked to myself looking at the mirror

an improvisation in the privacy of the room

preoccupied I was in my reverie with no horror.

 

The conversations I had with myself all the time

has made me saner for that matter  as such

I  picked quarrels with none at all times

lived  and live in my circumference as much .talking to myself
