P C K Prem


It is an age

when unity is scarce

like grain and water

a joint verdict stilled,

in hopes of flags

not unfurled.


But hands look fighting for a mould,

to call a summit of hearts.


Hard-bitten in a world of strife

of violence I tell you

full of cynical peace also,

and transforms itself into

a day of humanity,

waiting for a meaning

in minds lexicon.


An instinctive pursuing

continues in isles of chill,

for another era

of sadistic hope,

as collective will of united nations

collapses in high podiums,

of countless words expended

by soaring men,

not with obvious intentions.
