Grey and Brown : Poem

Vanita is an engineer-researcher-consultant-artist: a gifted singer-poetess; & writes in English-Hindi-Gujarati on her diverse experiences


Grey and Brown

Are friends and foes.

Grey is cold and casual,

Brown, hot and humble,

Grey idles, Brown overworks,

Both falter and fumble.

Grey’s expressions wobble,

Brown jabbers and squabbles.

Together they create mess

And then hunt for defense.

Scavenger instinct ignites

And on go scapegoat hunts

In the cruel wilderness

Of black blame games !!

Objectives off, goals gone,

Truth and Right, quarreled on,

When stirred up, blind with fears,

They don't mind joining hands ….

Grey and Brown

Are friends and foes –

When will they

Open their eyes ?
