VOGUE



This aeon is treacherous;
An age of strife, evil and wickedness
We see only masked faces
Turning our life into masquerades;
Feigned smiles, convincing flatteries,
Fetish beliefs, false promises;
All carrying a shackle attached to their ankles.
High- octane thoughts, high pitched laughter,
{“Like the crackling of thorns, under a pot”},
High-speed affability, pretending hypocrites;
Hyperbolic utterances, simulated snobbishness.

When man loves another man
God is taking birth in their minds.
When he starts hating another,
HE dies in the mind, and HE is buried!

On the sacrificial stone at the alter
Of unseen fate, the Time has placed man
As a sacrifice; his limbs tied up and
The guillotine may come down, any moment..
Truth has been chasing the dumb shadows
Of falsity, and myth always, in vain.

Time is a torrent and in the deluge, the desires
Plunge and surmount, rambling and drifting
In a quandary, as in a Jacuzzi.
We may believe that the quaint horizon is at hand
Yet, when we near it, it becomes distant.
That is the horizon of our desires!

We are living in a world full of megalomaniacs. ... Read on

Kunjubi, first of all the title is thoroughly justified. Yes, this is the kind of world we are in!

Regarding the poem, your style is distinct Kunjubi! What a way of expression! I am spell-bound! Wow! You are indeed a genius!

Thank you dear Latha..Sometimes I feel that "thank you" is an empty word. Just a formality we are complying, as a precednt and practice. But when the mind wants to tell more things, we are restricitng it in a 'thank you' only. We have no time to say anything the way we want.I was just thinking this afternoon to tell you, that when we write so much about love and its ancillarry emotions, we attribute a very high value to that emotion. But if we live another 100 years in this world, that word 'love' will be only seen in a dictionary and not in the hearts of people. that is the present trend, i believe. I am much indebted to the encouragement u make thru yr comments. appreciating your sincerity,,,love and peace.. kunjubi

Pungent wordings complemented by a sharp title. What more can be said! I am tongue tied reading your works and the way you express.

Padmaja... I am much obliged to you, for having taken the pains to find my blog and read some of its contents. it gives me a spur, for being more creative and to allay your fear of wasting time on my blog..I will be too happy if u cud go thru my other posts. dont bother to comment, just tell me if u can find any flaws in its content or presentation. I am not much of a wizard to make everything perfect. all these are borrowed garnishes from friends to make the appearance colourful. I am not so proficient in techniques of the p.c and the templates... Anyway i am grateful. Please support my imageries. I have only 9 month's standing in this arena. thanks again. lata told me abt u.. Nice to know u. be in touch... cheers... kunjubi
