Railway Station Ramblings

Anxious passengers
the arrival of their trains.

Bothersome salesmen
to find buyers for their biriyani.

Carefree children
cry and whine
for the chocolates they didn't get.

'Dashing dudes'
develop tactics
to dazzle a prospective 'darling'.

Everyone is engaged
in some enterprise
or the other.

Some people alone
continue to sleep
even in the presence of light;
even in the presence of awakening light.

P.S: The last verse is a tribute to Robert Graves's poem "She Tells Her Love While Half Asleep"

Mad Love

Oh yes,
Love is blind.
What can it make you do,
apart from caring,
hoping and loving more?

Mad love,
maddening love,
madly in love.
