LAUGH


i wonder if you can....
[responding to a writing prompt]
i wonder if you can
laugh at failure;
laugh with truth;
laugh.
fall;
and sit there
laughing
before
you hurriedly stand
up.
laugh without reason;
laugh with fullness;
laugh out loud.

SIZE MATTERS

SiZE maTtERs
a big heart is beautiful.
a small hand shows innocence.
small feet are adorable.
long ones are grand.
size matters
only because each thing viewed
in context of its size
changes the kind

of beauty
it embodies.

list poems

several yesrs ago i read the concept of list poems. well, here's one that happened spontaneously, in the process of collecting random overheard words over the course of one day:

shut up
drive
why should i?
come with me
listen
wakin' up too early
ohmygod
don't push me
play
too


its amazing how a little bit of random order and some imagination can do. lol.

Regrets


" LTTE REGRETS KILLING RAJIV GANDHI"
reads the headline today.
Oh what we would be
if we regretted before
we did.
mistakes avoided.
lives saved.
souls redeemed.
Regrets...

monsoons














monsoon rain downpours
-little sneezes upsetting
your daily humdrum.



this, incase you haven't guessed, isn't about the kind of recent monsoon that takes over entire days of your season in stroming downpours- those are just full stops!
this is the kind of monsoon that we deal with (bravely) with flimsy windcheaters and and umbrellas that get overturned.. but stops at that, and the occassional soak.

FEMINISM




all these "-ism"s we do in class. i keep wondering how many of them "work" and how many are mere concepts everyone talks about like they talk about 'truth' and 'religion'... existentialism... fanaticism... masochism...and- the big 'F'- feminism...
anyway, accurate discussion of concepts is one thing; framing clever words to convince a class of 20 year olds what their political leaning is, to me, an assumption of mass stupidity .

so here's to sister ananda:

Is feminism
A mindset or a movement?
Skip the drama, please!


i wish they would all encourage us to decide rather than actively want us to decide what they believe in.
