Treasure Island

Nasarudheen.P. Parameswaran

(8.8.1952 / Manakad)

A Glad Vision


A vision so bright, tongue-tied
A vision so makes legs benumbed
Unrhythmic chanting of Thy names
Won't make me move a pawn in games.
My Lord! as Thy light waves kiss
My sandy verges, I plunge in bliss.
Dazzled, blinked and stunned, I see
Then, 'I' melt into 'WE' as waves in Sea.
Sweating and swaying as buds in breeze.
Moment of revelation that, then Thou
Thou art, Thou art the Creator of all.
My cells and buds and waves and all.
Thou art, Thou art, Thou art in them all.
A handful of dust this body though
Resides in and beams in, Gracious Thou.
Benumbed senses sensuous though
Fail to feel the fragrant blooms
Besides Thee, no swimming sperm, no worm- while
Ice-bergs of cares melt around, no gloom-
I am glad, I'm glad, glad like a candle plume.

    An exalted moment of heightened vision, a moment of fusion of our fragile self with the Infinite Self, a moment of pure bliss, of unbounded joy! ! A Great experience, poetically portrayed! ! (Report) Reply

    I like the way this poem flows. Perhaps you should put a comma after the first ''Thou art''. I forget commas too, but I think that thay are important when the poem is read...There is definately a unique vibe to this poem. (Report) Reply

Poem of the Day

poet Henry David Thoreau

My books I'd fain cast off, I cannot read,
'Twixt every page my thoughts go stray at large
Down in the meadow, where is richer feed,
And will not mind to hit their proper targe.
