Fragile Identity

Fragile Identity short poem

Uploaded by KKV PERINGOTTUKARA

A blossom plant
From distant yard
Whispered in grief
To the flies around :
Would you love
With same delight
When I grow
Gray from green?

A Sparrow, chirps
With perplexed gaze,
From profound pride
To none but air
In bewildered loneliness :

When my voice
Breaks and cracks
Then my quills
Shrink and sink
Who will still
Like me alike?!

A legend landscape
Of sprawling waterfall
With a glorious flow
As well, a floral glow
That I love
The most of all,
Laments in despair
To whomsoever …. :

When this creek
Of melody rhymes
Of curly waves;
Of pearly frills,
by some freak
Withered and dried
-A day now
Or someday later-

Will you still
Visit and sit
On my lap
To grace and Praise?!

Nothing seems
Contemptuous
Neither corrupt, nor a flaw
It’s all Nature’s Law!

Turning back
To the walk of life
I could see my shadow …
With costumes
Dull and faint;
Cosmetics
Dim and fade !

There arose
Some questions ……
For I find
No answers ;
That elude
In blowing winds!
