Settlements which are establishing
Madhavi | 06 Oct 2008

A poetry to depict the helplessness of an aged person in finding his home

In the settlements which are establishing and changing continuously Where everyday new houses are constructing, New markets are emerging, I often forget my way  home.

 
The old landmarks deceive And I struggle hard to perceiveThe tracks of that ramshackled house, And that plot of   land from where I used to take a left turn Then that residence of Mr. Murli whose Entrance gate was without any paint.
 
My endeavours to search My destination make me faint.
 
In the settlements which are establishing and continuously changing
 
I strive to have a glimpse of that
Corner stationary shop from where
 I used to buy the pens and pencils
Running in hurry to reach the bus stop
To catch the bus on time
 
I feel every thing around me changed
Do I need to change my memories
To reach my lane?
In the settlements which are establishing and continuously changing
 
At the dusk of life , when my memory has left me unattended,
Can any body teach me the
New memory maps to reach my home?
