COLOR OF ODOR~by Balachandran Nair




Coconuts are different in color
Green, yellow, orange, grey
Coconut water still colourless, sweet.
Flowers are different in colour
Nectar is still colourless, sweet.
Emotions different make us weep
Tear is still colourless, saline
Food we consume different in color
Urine is still colourless, saline
Ways n means different I played,
Lies n tactics different I adopted,
Dreams of different colors I told
Still YOU remain stubborn, stiff
Unconcerned of myself
Like enchanting odor of some
Heavenly flower sought after by all, pure, divine…
Which why should be bothered
of any artificial colour ?
