These castles above were built from the underground…

Heaven Underground
In these sewers, under the palace,
a little of the bread is served
with a little of the paradise
People,
trying to turn it to heaven,
piece of the hell, they have gotten
Teaching their kids,
these castles above
were built from the underground.
[This poem came to me when I was reading about the Russian revolution. Not commenting on what’s wrong or right on the Moral landscape, neither do I consider myself competent enough even to differentiate between the two, but I deeply revere the Stoicism in the last three lines and wanted to point towards it.]

 

Diwali
Celebration happens
a day after
With
stolen candles,
leftover sweets,
unburnt crackers
picked up from the streets
Happiness
wasn’t affordable yesterday
It’s heaven on the footpath tonight

 
Just another bird
The dying wish of a wounded bird
to fly high, out of this painful world
will come true soon.

[This piece comes from a desirable fiction of mine. Whatever death is, I hope, it turns out to be something which someone was always looking for.]
