The Swing Of Emotions

The Swing Of Emotions

How sweet my emotions are
How swiftly they carry me
Across the smoky valley of imagination
Onto the azure sky of my dream land
Like the lofted ball of a playful child.

And alas!
I am being dropped again & again
With a helpless thud
And a clueless heart
To the realities of mocking laughter
Piercing into my being.

Silently I tolerate
Calmly I lie down
Waiting for the children
To begin playing again.

And again I coax myself
To welcome new vistas
To raise the wick of life a little
To add a handful of mud
To the collapsing wall
Of the cottage of my dreams.

About The Author


Kalyani Manna

Home Maker/Housewife

Orissa ,  INDIA

I became a housewife even before I became a major. By that time I had only completed my Pre-University & was in the Ist year. Marriage put a stop to my academic career & when I again wanted to résumé my studies the system had already been changed. So I had to appear privately for my I.A degree followed by a five year lull. By the time I took admission in the B.A classes I had become a mother with two kids. But by the grace of God Almighty, I passed with distinction in Philosophy. Then again after a gap of seven years & after Rashmi’s birth I took admission in M.A classes to study English literature.


I also sing & had play- backed for several dramas, staged in our home town, Puri. I love to read, listen to old Hindi film songs & ghazals. I write poetry in Odiya, Hindi & English. I believe that most of the violence & turmoils that are happening all around us are due to our petty selfishness & intolerance. Our youth are in need of solace & must be given a patient hearing to their grievances, both real & imaginary.


I have strong faith in God & in His doings. I see His hands behind everything that happens to me. Him with me I fear nothing.
