The Lady

31st October 2023 Mr Mani Menon


The lissome lass stood unmoving

Her eyes fixed on the distant horizon

Who was she waiting for so patiently

Even as the strong breeze whipped her hair around her face

And the pallu of her green saree danced and clung to her

  1. Hi Mani

    I loved the way you wrote a poem about the humble corn. It is mind-blowing how you have compared the leaf to the pallu. For our international readers, pallu is the part of the saree that is draped over the shoulders. The long hair and the pallu make this corn look like a lady. Well done Mani for that creative poem.
