Father to Daughter – Gopalmoorthy, Kerala


images (1)Don’t have a mind like a lawn.

Well-mowed, watered twice daily –

The boring sameness – just greenness, no grass.

Its conformity you should avoid.

Grow. Like the wild ground, devouring it greening.

Twist and turn and twirl and rot and from rot revive.

Because when the streak of silver is announced

Neither vanity nor despair should mow to half

Your life thereafter.
