m k harikumar poem

Flowers yellow, leaves green

The poets were debating on the sequence of death;
Who died first whether the poet or the poem?
He stood there listening to the wailings
of both the poets and their verses

Inside there were chairs
with swollen belly,
tables that have gone crazy,
sensual shadows
and junk of books,
even as the sales and discussions
went on an on

Then he got scared of death
He was not ready to
become a corpse

Instantly he felt the urgency
of poetic metaphors
to break away from the confines
of the bookshop

In a trance he recalled the days when
snake charmers, poets and teachers
were suffering for want of lovers

in his molecules began to blow apart
since ages

And how love was orphaned
denied of the right to survival and fortunes
The poet in him was born by chronicling
the erosion of culture and meanness of the past

He tried his best to see that the carcass
of his desires did not turn into poetic imageries

Meanwhile even his corpse
was on the look out for a safe haven

Thoughts of m k harikumar

" As literary creation is not possible without words, the impetus of conscious that ignore the meanings of words aims at an un accessible zone in literature. The conscious never rests while the words retreat with their inheritance. It aims at an unworldly openness of the soul. What words do talk are definite things. They are the qualifiers of the reason. The massive muscles of words always do pick up visual of life and the magnitude of realities. But a creative mind is restless. It sees the ocean of life beyond the limiting frames of plain words."


"Peep into the nucleus of each experience and live in there; that was what Vijayan. The life of Mankind is not single-faced. It's in multi layers and in various layers of memories. If one wants to walk through those myriad pathways, it needs a microscopic alertness of emotions to imbibe the fertile soil from them and to respond to them."



"Each emotion facilitates the soul with a communication of a sort. It can be o…
