A glimpse of Taj Mahal


Wonderful is not so much
The mausoleum's chisel cut beauty
As the beauty of the love
Arrested in its architecture-
Starry white dome in starry space
Ray lit clouds set aglow

Fairer than the sky, akin to third eye
Visitors' mind illumine with cosmic bliss
As night snuffs asleep.
What's bricked up looking glass
Dawn sunpolishes
Till Jamuna's surface looks back

Hallucinating but still real.
There's in it no beauty
That's not surpassed in beauty
By beautiful carved adage
Till earth wears out love like theirs
Suffuses this world wonder sarcophagus.

    The Taj at Agra in India is a monument that speaks volumes about the hapless thousands who toiled and perished in the process and it stands out as an image of hypocritical dimensions far fetched from the real angles of love between an emperor and his wife. The poem points finger at the evidences of many disastrous acts of human folly. (Report) Reply

    A beautiful building...but a sad story for the architects and builders...my heart goes out to those poor souls. (Report) Reply

    1] Fairer than the sky, akin to third eye / Visitors' mind illumine with cosmic bliss

    Support the artistic work which could be more precious than the heaven. Sometimes. But sometimes may be the dream of whole civilization.

    2] Hallucinating but still real.

    Beautiful. The ambiguity of visual art depicts the eternity.

    Yes, it is Taj Mahal Revisited by the human eyes which illuminates the light of infinite.

    Thank you Yoonoos for taking me back to my youthful days. I found myself standing in front of the Taj in 1978 all over again. Paddy 10 (Report) Reply

    While reading this poem my mind's eye looked at the vision I say some years ago when I visited the Taj. Your poem conjures some beautiful images and memories. Good as always.
    I'd like you to read through two of my poems: 'Twas Not A Rose', and 'One Day in The Life of Ivan Gesticulatovich'.

    Cheers.
