AN EXQUISITE EXAMPLE

A blissful bird embarks.on strenuous striving
To realise the requisite reward of lovely living
Inviting us all to focus on tremendous thriving
Always occupying prominent seats of driving

That you can’t sing is the only thing in your life
That keeps available all undesirable things rife
You are destined to go through course of strife
As an inseparably integral igredient of your life

When we never entertain thoughts about death
We will have enchanting ecstasy without dearth
No other creature fosters ideas about negativity
We can better.lives with perspective of positivity

A life well lived loftily in the world sets its sample
All others can emulate it as an exquisite example
Let us learn to swim in the sea of joy without fear
Sinking all our differences as humans living near

SOUL-STIRRING BY THE GREAT SOUL

A man with a frail frame rose to fame
Scantily clad. he.publicised his name
He was not expected to be in the lead
Sowing in each mind patriotism’s seed

He rose above the bounds of religions
His strong spirit triumphed over legions
His theories are embraced with charm
For creating amidst the storm all calm

Bullets can not reign over human mind
Filled .with the idea of freedom.refined
He inspired many with his spirit clean
He was imprisoned for times umpteen

Nonviolence as the instrument of action
He utilised fully to supreme satisfaction
Astounding the world with real enterprise
His success radiated his phenomenal rise

Many countries treaded the bloodless path
He explored for ending all evil of blood bath
He is considered the man of the millennium
For stirring the souls without pandemonium

MY DIVINE MOTHER

You were a deity who dwelt on this earth
Enrapturing my existence giving me birth
You were my goddess mother I perceived
Tremendous traits of yours I well received

Your poetry often sparkled with splendour
Your melodious voice created real.wonder
We used to gaze at your wealth of wisdom
You endowed us with intellectual freedom

Pundits prostrating before your lotus feet
Praised you for adorning Saraswathi’s seat
All my eyes were brimmed with tears of joy
I could not understand your glory as a boy

I always represent a sparkle of your genius
My poems speak of your intellect ingenious
Your spirit goes on inspiring our generation
We offer flowers to your spirit in veneration

DICHOTOMY OF THE BODY AND THE SPIRIT

Meandering through distant hamlets
Wearing grace and peace as armlets
The river finally merges with the .sea
Nullifying its ego with an earnest.plea

A bird pours forth its full throated glory
As it is bound to be on twittering spree
It sings a psalm to keep the world calm
It ends its life after keeping life’s charm

A flower radiates resplendent fragrance
Keeping in blossom enormous elegance
The breeze wafts sweet scent all around
The flower offers itself to God in the end

A man confronted with thirst and hunger
Turns egoistic when the problems linger
He grows greedy keeping things at best
His body decays as it faces eternal rest
