In Search Of Him

you have heard many stories
of pines and cedars
but this:
a scene of loss,
peril
my fingertips tremble
and freeze as i touch
the rose gold fountain pen
i blink twice
my smoky lids as i
explore him
about
on the papers;
so unfamiliar with my language, sheets
quiver as I stride my nails on
letters and words search for fervour
as i even think of him
everytime
on a paper
under fading pink skies
amid the pines
in a word, letter
for you and me
he is new
and gone, long gone

His Motherland’s Gift

farmer threshed
chaffs cracked
grains dismantled
his sweat of poverty
dripped-
wet the mud
he dreamt to come out
of a poor’s debris
as his feeble legs shivered
in sweltering heat
he ignored his hut
for moments
so as to escape-
diseased wife
cracked roof
tough walls of debt
his harvest too
reaped losses
all doors shut
so he withdrew
dropped down
attack gave lesser ache
than what his motherland
gifted

This poem outlines the condition of many farmers in India. It is an everyday crisis.
Strong and heartfelt prayers to every farmer who spend their lives to protect every soul from hunger and starvation.

They’re angels in disguise.
