A woman is an island? / Poem by Juhi Gupte

Poem by Juhi Gupte
 
 
A woman is an island?
 
A woman is an island
with a shore,’definite’
Infinite waves
swashing, backwashing..
 
co-existing are
sky-high woods
of all -isms
hanging are aged cob webs,
“protecting” patriarchy?
allowing her to envelope
the ‘known’ quadrants
 
Must,at dark,
quiet and fast asleep..
 
when ice-caped,
not mellowing voice
she is called ‘poles’,
not acceptable
to the tropical tribes…
 
Often deserted,
if she spreads like wild-fire
uprooting
Savannahs of Systems..
 
Picturesque! Perennial! Phoenix!
