Can man get antique?
Antique refers to rare, old items of high value.
Thanks.

Business As Usual

Paucity of space where I can store gifts and presentations, make my house unkempt. The racks overwhelm. Vessels,boxes and baskets of all sizes and materials might crash any moment. I chalk out an anteroom near my parlour. Must have racks partitions to arrange, along with nice ventilation. Adding a r...

Re: Traveling in Mexico

I like the poem.
Simple and brief.
The Mayans and Mexico work well.
The grief of N runs parallel to the scenario,
N has failed to save his marriage.
Of course the last lines,

as if we were stranded travelers
who bring only baggage.
are very expressive.

Hail To Kali

I hear bleat, laden with fear, from a temple not very far off. It is not in chorus a single sound that rips the heart as pity surrounds. An experience of sorrow perceiving the ritual I stay where I am with a heart pounding. The goat bathed walks to the altar with a garland of rose jumping with joy. ...

Very well expressed.
A circular motion, what we do comes back, hits us with a force.
A natural event. Frank.

Those days- The Colonial Era

my mother speaks to herself as if in a reverie. I go past her, careful in movements, drag a chair close to her, knowing I can listen to an historical event. Mom often goes back, These moments throw a variety of experiences happy and sad. The rich culture of India, a sponge absorbed the British ways,...

Re: The Problem With Two Cats

I can relate. as I experience the same way, driving them with a broom. I have to take an extra care to keep the windows and doors of my kitchen shut as they would creep in and drink the milk to the last drop.
Funny,

The Smuggling Experience

The checks, scans, immigration and thumb impressions, the wait and walk at the airports turn me insane. The luggage is examined in three centres. Queuing, I endure the formalities with disenchanted cheer. My laptop is skimmed naked, as if it is dreadfully ill. Documents, mails, and photos remain no ...

Re: My Mother's Flashbacks

The poem is an echo of the hurt.
The one liners enhance the pathos.
The love, for the man who divorced her and married another, is well portrayed.
I did feel the hurt and suffering your mom had.
Emotional!

Moonlit Garden

I am in a buffet, laid out in a garden. a pond besides the stars twinkle. The moon is full. Walks with me towards the table lights up a rows of dishes exotic and delicious. Salads, rice, roti, potato fries, soup, and many more. Veggies being my staple food. Curious turn towards the other one, loaded...

"Awkward" seems awkward to me.
There are other words to point out the feel.
Bob, anyhow, thanks for dropping in.
Glad you enjoyed the poem.
I will modify the stanza in the revision.
