A Monologue On Father’s Day

A Monologue On Fathers Day short poem

Uploaded by Dr.Indu Nautiyal

Father ! Can you hear me ?
I wish to talk to you today
If only you could answer
And tell me that you do !

How blessed would I feel
To hear you once again
And rush towards you as a child
Lost long in a crowded fair

I know it’s wishful dreaming
To seek your presence around
For having left this world
Has anyone ever returned ?

But the memories refuse to die
Living so deep in the heart
And appear on the surface often
Like scenes on a movie screen .

And what can ever silence
The words of precious wisdom
You pronounced from time to time
Guiding me through ups and downs

Let me tell you for once this day
That I have tried to follow the path
You showed me early in life
And hoped that I will never deviate .

I hardly know other ways
To honour your loving memories
But keep you in my mind for ever
And do what you would cherish.

Could you hear me . Father ?
Please speak . or even if you don’t
I’ll presume that sure you did
And blessed me as always
Whenever I approached you !

I have been a teacher for about four decades ,but even more than that , a student and learner all along --literature being my favourite subject with special love for poetry , a trait I seem to have inherited from my father,who was a very good poet ,it was he that instilled in me a deep love for poetry early in childhood . Starting as a science student ,I shifted to literature after graduation and and worked on Emily Dickinson's poetry for Doctoral degree. I don't claim to be a poet ,but do admit my inherent love for poetic utterances as and when I find them and sometimes feel inspired to give vent to my own emotions in words that seem to convey them .Honestly it happens quite effortlessly and also leaves me with an immense satisfaction .If it can be termed poetry ,all the more rewarding. .

I loved your poem. My Dad passed on in 2003 and though it has been a long time ago, I still miss him so very much and wish that I could sit and visit with him at least one more time. I found your poem well written. Keep up the good work.

Doom’s Day

Doom’s Day short poem

The rapture was on prowl to get the believers. You knew what you should not have known about the baby blue. Aphasia, experiences an impulsive violence, beyond the dead. Bionic hands to capture the moment of swapping uremia with swastika.

I never knew that one day would be there When I would ask my existence from you One day I would beg you to apply vermilion on my forehead To name my child, to change my identity.. One day that
