One poem by Sanjeev Sethi

Lucky Stars

Augured by awnings of birth
preparation for benedictions
starts at parturition.
Cradlesongs in clover
are favors of filiations.
In an unsigned mise
there is lifelong
guarantee of guardrails.
Pickets are within purview.
Ownership is an ally.
A few still nix it.
Garlanding lotus-eaters
is an insult to marigolds.
