Couldn't serve
Baby's inarticulate desires
Desperate wet nurse
"Let there be light," and there was light.
But, I've been grappling with darkness
Since my birth, my Lord!

Flow like a river
Meandering, eroding, denuding, vitalizing...
From small beginnings to a glorious end
River merging into the ocean

Remains a mute witness
Invoked Miranda Rights?

Tall

Ascending, cantering, vaulting
Vertically gifted, vertically challenged
Descending, craving, scampering
Small framed, compact
Short
Flightless
Terrestrial, timid
Adapting, running, swimming
Hunted on the ground, shot in flight
Flapping, soaring, swooping
Agile, curious
Winged
Who taught you to build,
Weaverbird?
I'm homeless and destitute
Climbing up and down
Do you count your steps,
Li'l squirrel?

Appa
S Nirmal Kumar Nov 2018
Writing is my passion
You're my inspiration

My rock solid foundation
Whom I seek in times of tribulation

Pragmatic precepts did he essay
Not so difficult to follow, I would say

Though departed to a place far away
His memories keep me swing and sway

I yearn for your visitation
Desperately need some consolation
An avid reader, a writer of merit, a man of profound knowledge and moral soundness. I owe everything to my appa. The memory of walking alongside with him in the journey of life is unforgettable. The imprints he made on the sands of time are indelible.
