Widows

I think about our widows
With their heads shaven,
Forbidden from wearing
Red or coloured clothes,
Dressed in all whites,
Forbidden from eating red things too,
Fish and meat,
Garlic and onion too,
Not allowed to smile and laugh loudly,
Not even allowed to speak freely,
All under scrutiny and purview,
Living under restrictions
Leading a life so hard to depict.
