Umbrella Stones

Umbrella stones are the guards of a
generation lying under the centuries.
The bones of our forefathers are
intact under the seal of green moss.

Their souls had fled.
The worms had been fed.
But the unyielding genes 
continue its unending journey.

Pesticides were unknown to them,
yet they tilled and filled.
Their thoughts were never toxic 
like the fruits and vegetables today. 

Lastly erected umbrella stones proved 
all the tears, that had been spilled out,
as ‘necessary wastage of emotions’.
We have to read a lot under and on.

Umbrella Stones stand exposed, still 
they resist the challenges of centuries –
 they safeguard memories against
 the emptiness of oblivion.

(Umbrella stones are the centuries old memorial stones for the dead, erected in the place where they had been buried. These structures were carved out of rocks in the shape of umbrellas. A few umbrella stones at Ariyannur, Guruvayur , Kerala inspired me to write this poem)
