PREDICAMENT
Vinod Anand | 15 Jul 2011

(1)

Numerous Sorrows

Stand in a quelong

With faces averted

Like the family of Ravana

(2)

The Poet’s heart

Burdened with life

Tired, helpless

What poetry can it make?

(3)

Are there are not

Moments of happiness subtle

Bereft of selfhood

The overburdened mind is consoled

A beatific web is woven

To entice-

The delightful illusion, poetry-

Vain attempt to lead

Into the other side of existence.
