Belinda

sonnet #19

Belinda

i would not have you, Belinda, in darkness sit,
on days like this, my hand clasped in hand dead,
remembering sadly your fragrant bed –
each moment therein, what joy we had of it.
rather, while still our lights though dimmed were lit,
bid friends to the parties that once we planned,
happy all the time! until to the dust’s demand,
your soul, not mine, did separately submit.

so, when i come (for you at last will call
and i shall hear and linger not at all) ,
still to your throat, your arms, your loosened hair
will cling and savour your glowing orchid petal’s fresh kiss,
so sweet to me! and doubly sweet for this –
that you for me should have left a place so fair!

SONNET--Breakfast in Gurunathan Cafe

A Sonnet

Breakfast in Gurunathan Cafι

You that seateth cafι by Andal temple beside
Bestride upon stool behind kerosene stove
Busy with thy wares, quick in spirit
One that dons a banian snow – white
Schooling thou hast none, lettered scarce
Yet schooled in catering makes one amaze
As dosas hot on plate spread as lotus pad
Dawn lights the day, the town unfold
What art, subtle blessed skill thou possess
To churn out those gentle idlis
White as lily, soft jasmine, no crusts
Better than my better half’s breasts?
Piping coffee, crisp vada, sambar of onion
Tingling in taste, neat recipe fine.

Inside Out

sonnet #12
inside out


i was indifferent to my being,
used myself as just a thing, a stranger;
me, a species of the genus “caring”,
my own guardian, a deranged lone ranger!

told i must see from the inside, myself,
to know how I appeared from the outside;
must learn to feel at one with this good “self”,
not estranged and cut off, blown off-side!

if i related to you as that self,
oh dear! God help you! i was truly stuffed!
but i learned to care for that guy, myself,
damn! doing so, the caring became shared!

now i have friends who think me worth knowing,
and we’ve sown seeds that will keep us growing.

Thoughts in the style of Pope

Sonnet #16
thoughts in the style of pope

i know how little can be known
i see all others’ faults and feel my own;
my own strange purpose to find
or make an enemy of mankind?

why is the external for that internal given?
am i not a God and earth my only heaven?
i, a virtuous son, am ill at ease
the lustful “Father” gave me a dire disease.

distracted by what others feel, what others think,
all pleasures sicken, all triumphs sink;
my right too rigid hardens into wrong
for the strong too weak, for the weak too strong.

all forms that die, other forms supply,
so i can catch that final breath, and die.
