A HOUSE~by Indira Sadanandan


 

 

A HOUSE

A house built of syllables
With consonants and vowels as it’s walls
Adorned with paintings of
Metaphors and symbols
Small rooms with doors of captions
Wide windows of imagination
Beds filled with hallucinations
Pillows with soft and spongy dreams
And of a basement of versification
Having a roof of imagery –
This house was made at a time
Immemorial
Renewed at times by the masons
Plato ,Aristotle ,Shakespeare,
Milton ,Wordsworth ,Shelly and Keats
And even now being renovated by great builders
Of post modern poems , poetry being
The inmate of the house
