Poisoned Fruits – Sundaram Chauhan (of My Short Stories and Thoughts)

Strange are

the ways of nature.

While the sweet

nourishing fruits

get plucked away

at the peak of their youth

the poisonous ones

hang snug

among their kin

nurtured kindly

till their very last breath.

I am a Social Worker by day and an artist/writer by night. I use the written word in an attempt to make sense of the secret worlds and dysfunctional dynamics that lurk beneath the facades of our daily interactions. I am not sure how my writing styles are characterized, nor am I overly concerned about it. I am immensely enthusiastic about music and often connect better with songs than I do people. I also have an intense appreciation for quality wines and whiskies, frequently consuming them in excess. I like things that smell good and struggle to manage the symptoms of a life-long relationship with depression. So, why "grumpygorman"? Spend some time here and find out...
