Sreelekha Premjit

The Strain Of Laughter

the strain of laughter
is a pain.

Its Sad But True

Its sad but true
that i hurt you again
but to hurt vents the anguish
from the anger will rise a spark
its sad but true
that i see no other way
but to hurt to awaken the spirit
from the pain shall rise a flame
its sad but true
that i hurt to be hurt again
but to hurt is what i hate
from hurt to hurt i go.

Purple sunbird changes hue

The purple sunbird dances
dressed in shades of black

then the sun spots her
turning her into a mesmerising purple

so do we change tones
when love stops by

nudging gently at the elbow
reminding of gifts to bestow

in times of joy or sorrow
to many a friend or foe

be the purple sunbird
dancing and get others to dance with you

coz there's much to give
and lots to forgive

The Agony Of Success

he rushed to me
to share his joy
his new found achievement

glowing eyes,
pride-coated
confessed with gay abandon

the elation of success
the pains unlimited
the adulation received


endless his talk
painful for me to endure
my eyes twinged with jealousy

how could i tell him
what pinched me
is his success

The teacher and the taught

The little devil walks up
-head bowed,
a picture of repentance

-he seeks forgivance
eager to apologise
a reformed person.

The teacher looks on
her eyes filled with affection
ready to embrace the culprit.

The teacher and taught
share an experience
unique and vibrant.

Each time a student walks up to ask
each time the teacher feels honoured to answer
each time a student turns to her for guidance
the teacher obliges with no resistance.

She Stood Dressed In Green

She stood dressed in green
Twinkling bells of light, bright, dark green
And the soulful singers fluttered around
Voicing songs of joy and happiness
Then suddenly she shook me
Stark in her nakedness
Shorn of her green dress
The songsters disappeared
Was she part of Femen
Was she a member of an aggrieved party
Was this deliberate
This shedding, this unclothing
Or was this seasonal
Or inflicted
Maybe her beauty awed them
Maybe they wanted to punish her
Maybe this was her protest
Maybe she was in subjugation
Standing on the balcony of the fourth floor
I could look her in the eye

Silence Empowered

its the power of being mute
not open not quite

is the trick to upset others
punish with pain of indifference.

its the power of silence
exercised by those powerful

to quieten the disquiet
to wrap beneath, away from sight

the well- known secrets of the public life
the reason for the latest fight

the cause of tears, private happiness
that secret smile, a silent chuckle

all it takes to silence anger is to
smoothly iron out differences

Well.... nothing need be said

HE fell behind
unable to cope

still his hands joined in prayer
for her, his beloved

he never stopped dreaming
but pushed them to reality through her

each time she ventured
he listened carefully to her adventures

each time she hesitated wanting courage
he egged her on to defy fear

at times when tasks seemed mundane
she paused to think of him

life was to her a promise to keep
to achieve what should have been his as well

The Reclining DeityI

Majestic
on the lap of Anantha, the snake
he lay
eyes closed in divine pleasure
gods on all sides
Kaveri at his feet
the majestic Vishnu
huge mamoth like
wearing a child like smile
the lord of the universe
the lord of many hearts
in the town of
Sreerangapatana
the city of Sreeranga
and the heads bowed
in reverence
in respect
in adoration
when in the evening
he was brought out

The Rumour Spread Thus

The rumour spread that he is dead
the talks were excited with passionate greed

anxious souls rushed to the site
eager for morsels of material food

(to pacify momentary greed
though not satiate the need for more)

as he lay he heard the commotion
quickly he came to the conclusion

and the poor unloved soul
thought it fit to kill what was left
of the dying life in him

the rushing crowd of wards and worse
saw the father writhing in pain

his slit hand spoke volumes
