Journey -1


Hey poet

If you are

Not in love

With the first line of the poem

Then the journey of the poem

Ends there



Journey – 2


When we were tired

Sat on the steps

For some time

You said “ Lets go now ”

“ Lets move ” Said I

And both of us left.


Grain and Language


Even a grain is

too heavy

Find out from the bird
