Human colors

Gripping the luggage with
Doubtful legs and
Staring somewhere
Leaning on window
Pretends to sleep
A careful another
Possessing the seat with
Extended hands
A lanky person
Whom to ask for
Exchanging upper berths
Of aged parents

Sit and chat
For us though they
Shadows of midnight

Bachelor's paradise

Bachelor's paradise
-----------------------------------
Sundays are days when
Sun wakes you up
Reluctant bath and

Recline on sofa
In front of TV
Noon is the time to
Go for the feast
Evening is bad as
Monday is morning
-----------------------------------Nagendra Bharathi

Return of the flower

Time to win

Time to win

Blossom in summer
Birds also fail to
Fly when it rains
Time has to come
Wait till the dawn

Tears are true

Tears are true
---------------------
Unsaid love has
Attributes unique
Seeing is enough
Saying is too far
Occasional smiles are
Cherished for years
Parting and meeting would
Sort out the cheating
Laughs are false
Tears are true
-----------------------------------------------Nagendra Bharathi

Memory rewind

Memory rewind

Those were the days

Mezzanine rooms with
Broken furniture
Branches of trees
Touching the balcony
Slippery floor of
Deserted temple
Who has the privilege to
Play there now
-----------------------------------Nagendra Bharathi

Soul of peace

Find the place to
Live thereafter
Molecules of mind
Gather the experience to
Grow thereafter
Underlying soul
Flowers to find
Peace thereafter

Opens the door for
Valuable customers
Could not stop the
Exit of aroma
Which does feed the
Old beggar's nose

Slip-age

Slip-age

Unable to hold even
Cup of her tea
Always a slip between
Sip and her lip
May God forgive them
Whom she fed then

When the wind blows hard

Taking care of thee
Better soft to earth else
Take the hard to death

Increase the employment

Good for America

Improve the rupee rate
Increasing exchange rate would
Inhibit the exporters
Internal and external forces
In play on inflation
