The Canon of Cohabitation

What rules the heart of these silently sanguine creatures ?
Nothing fanciful seem foisted on their favored features
To glean any flow in those chambers of an unique plasma
Unfathomable to Man wonderstruck by the Nature’s charisma !

For, Man thought the key of evolution was always in his hands,
Having conquered end-to-end the planet’s expanse of lands
But,in his alienation, rues the day he missed the Golden Thumb-Rule
Of Peaceful Co-existence taught by Teacher Time in its School…

About Kumaara Sukeja

As for my bio-tidbits, had studied English Literature for my B.A ( Hons.) degree in the 70s.Dad was a writer and a journalist of repute in the vernacular media in his time. There were also others before him in the family who had celebrated works in their names in the Kanarese, the local language.I was fascinated by Ogden Nash for one for his originality. Among the literary devices, I have almost a weakness for Alliteration and Rhyme schemes also come easy to me. As one grows mellow with age—I am Sixty–I guess, Empathy is one virtue that develops in the character, naturally, after shedding a lot of flab throughout the years…Although my name is Ramesha, I prefer to write under my pen name.
