Genetics

A wholesome baby, plump and bald, with big eyes, without a chin born as a fourth child, lies pretty smiling all the way, a contented child, as seen from the day of birth, stays happy the rest of the years. Two more siblings, boys, come after her in an interval of few years. add to the bustle. The fa...

No more of singing the beauty of Moon, the pictures shot by the rockets reveal nothing grand. The planet is another with crates and rocks an uneven terrain not the most...

Nicely pictured the eccentricities of Shelley and Byron,
" a meadow of perfumes" illustrates their infirmities with a soft echo.

Re: Note From the School Shooter's Therapist

Interesting read, Ken. The shooter playing with a toy, poking his sister's Barbie, all seem normal.
The shooting and the aftermath, terrible to go through, Ken.

Re: Downsizing the Dead

Reading through I could feel the presence of the spirit.
The cats scratching the door, the downstairs neighbour talking about her presence adds more fear.
The last stanza is traumatic.

Well written, Subject is not my choice.

Re: Let Go

The poem I would have written, Playing on the violin, trying to master the notes, I scrape faster and faster. Walking towards the kitchen to whisk an omelet as usual, I did not expect to see you toppled, over onto the linoleum, your doggy paws curled and shaking like small fists? I tremble even now ...

Who Could She Be?

She is the most adorable I go round in circles when I notice her, that I rarely do. I fondle,run my fingers, tap her. She is passive. Feel she likes my overtures. Being lovely, at the same very thoughtful, she leads me out of adversaries with such felicity. She is lifelike all the more, nestles agai...

Monsoon Bliss

The water starved town congregates in the temple. Shlokas and hymns call Varuna, the Rain God, who is indignantly obstinate refuses to condescend. Weeks together, the invocation goes on. The Yagnas try to appease Varuna. The fumes rise up, cajole him with aromatic infiltration. Rag, Ananda Amirtavar...

Hinduism says crows represent the ancestors.
