A Reflection of Life

Neetha 1974 (Galle)

A star at the corner, twinkled
Once prime peak
Now a slopy slip
Of old and gone fading
Rhyme -lost
Hunger creeped
Like an old lion
Who has lost its valour
Breaking crushed
Weary bones
Withered away
Whimsical fancies sling by
Profusly behind the bar
A gallop,
Like a wave sprung, new
Sudden but swift
Fresh and dashed over the shore
Propped up
A nerve -filling dart
Fostering the fury
Of long -seated, drunk
Disabled and lost
One  hot doomed day
Resembling the days yet not old
Sprung -rhythm
As in an aspiring dream
Life 's pun  
Secrets of old age.
