ONCE UPON A TIME WITH A BIRD

Once upon a time with a bird
She moved
Like a walking shadow
Smiling at vales

She perched on brittle creaking tree
Hushed it…With mellifluous rhythm
She gleamed upon my gaze
Then,
I
Bade
Bye!

——————-

LAPAI

Crypt!
Yet a laughing star
In her bosom dwells
Daffodils
Often
A smiling sun

Yes!
She stirs us
Wipes us
With
Bliss

Lapai;
Just take a
Glimpse and leave

——————-

NATION

Cart before horse,
We,
Move like howling wind
As nation stands upon
Extinct phase
Dregs famished; like desert ship
As
Politrickians gulped her perquisite

——————-

THE VISITOR

You are sleepless gay
Yet,
Of
Solitude art
With
Icy hand
