ODE to 2021

A S SUBRAMANIAN NAMPOOTHIRI 1961 (Thodupuzha Kerala)

Ode


EVERYDAY-
The sound and fury dies and
life gets freezed
adding one more page to your story

The torchering sun
tanning your skin
captures bright candids for your album

Near and dear, kith and kin,
the one and the only one
say good night and part

Trials and tribulations, bands and bonhomie
kept aside  
for  lighting your fireplace

heights scaled , bridges crossed
citations and honours well desrved
moved into the deft hands of the servant

offers you the window side
to savour the sweat
and sweet of your journey

Carry the unfinished pages
bound with tags of time
to release when all contradictions end
                       ****
