When Maa Married the Fire…
 
A bright February morn,
Turned to be a day of mourn!
Mother left to marry fire.
 
The little children distraught,
Sadness, uncertainties fraught,
Magic happens, they desired!
 
None like that ever happens!
When fate alters and blackens,
Motherless, despised, left dire!
 
So many years since she left
The kids grew up care bereft!
 
The father would sing them songs
To his kids his heart belonged!
 
 
A PEARL SCOOPED OYSTER!
 
Emptiness engulfs
In the ebony, green ocean
Of distress and disappointments
Frantically grappling, drowning
Gasping, still afloat
The sun burns on the face!
The brine irritates!
The empryean mocks
The glee of scorn, palpable!
A Siren’s call, the victim
like Odysseus’ crew falls!
The favoured find pearl deep down
Jinxed fate gapes at pearl scooped oyster
The bubble of life explodes!
Emptiness engulfs!
