RIBS OF PARASOL

Image
The ribs of parasol haven me in
Dewy dawn, sunlit day, drizzling dusk
Cover my cadaver and carcass
Swaddle frost imbued shell of life
Endure sinister and cheerful ambiance
Until the advent of torment tornado
Shield shrinks, ribs perforate eyes
Defender twirls into demolisher
Typhoon of anger conquers soul
Shatters umbrella of unbound dreams
Covers the cadaver and carcass
Swaddles frost imbued shell of life

MAHATMA

mahatma gandhi
Valiant warrior of Non-violence
Walked in the vestibule of truth,
Stature and soul sauntered the path
Zilch yearning for the foyer of power
Initiator of inventive humane means
Epithet of ethnic amity, easing paucity,
Personification of peace and patience
Viaduct of variance and consent
Candled the radiance of a mighty Nation
Melted to solidify the power of sacrifice
– VIGIL KUMAR
