A Kiss with 'Deference'
by Seshu Chamarty
Bookmark and Share
  West and East
Differ by that kiss out in the open! 
In the West people are kissed in public -- 
Heads bow without batting an eyelid. 
The earth is kissed in the East with no reserve, 
Both expressing their love for fellow humans - 
But the latter carries more public 
To be kissed, just out of reverence. 

(Inspired by the picture of revered Narendra Modi bowing before Parliament.)

Comment Seshu, Modi made a remarkable gesture by kissing the 'threshold of the Parliament', considered by him 'the temple of democracy' hitherto used to protect the scamsters!!
Your poem is nice.
Please read an article 'Between the lines' by me here on boloji.
