A Perpetual Stream Of Sacred Consciousness


I asked the mountain
You are very strong
you will exist till the end of creation

The mountain replied numbly
No, Nay, not so
the water can flow me and
convert me to a plain land
then my existence will vanish

I asked the rock
no one can melt you
the rock also replied numbly
No, Nay not so
the water can melt me
and I will be no more

I asked the trees
the water will destroy you
the tree replied
No, Nay not so
it shall irrigate me and
give me life

I asked each and every creatures
all replied
water is more soft, more rich
and more strong
it can destroy and give life too
it can quench thirst of all
and give life to all

I asked the Water
You are soft and mild
You are rich and strong too

The water replied
No, Nay not so
I may be dried at any time

It is poetry,
a perpetual stream of sacred consciousness
flowing ever and ever
beyond the stars and planets and
even beyond plenty of universe

The Poetry can save me and
pray to God for my survival.

    Wonderful imagery in your poem. Mother nature supplies many insights into our
    poetry, flowing always like a waterfall into the pool of our subconsciousness
    and being written out for all to read. Thank you for sharing. RoseAnn (Report) Reply

    philosophy of life found in all God's creations - when they started talking to each other, well that poetry, in an amazing kind of expression. :) (Report) Reply

    You're right about the mountain, being converted from lava into stone, water and, at least, into land, that water keeping the life(it's logical, isn't it?) , being dried at the end.You're a genius -great poem. Applause! (Report) Reply

    Mother Nature is Poetry and Poetry is Mother Nature! Poetry is the echo of the living soul magically translated into powerful and poignant words and accompanied by rich imagery! This is a fact of life that can be proven clearly by reading your touching and conscious writes! 10+++ It is so refreshing to my mind reading this poem and other masterpieces you have shared with us! God Bless You! Love and Peace for always! Your friend and brother! Romeo-NYC (Report) Reply

    The flow of poetry is compared to that of water, sometimes flooded or moist or even dry. The poets are the dreamers and they make the people to think as well as get entertained. a beautiful poem! (Report) Reply

    Yes poetry is the mountain, the rock, the stream and the tree.
    Very innovation discourse on what writers are and feel! (Report) Reply

  • The Reader (7/9/2012 10:31:00 AM)

    Yes ofcourse! poetry, used purposefully, can really become the cause of our salvation-it is the Divine talent which even Milton thinks as a means of worship - (And that one talent which is death to hide
    Lodg'd with me useless, though my soul more bent
    To serve therewith my Maker, and present
    My true account...) under a very arresting title, you have given a wonderful fusion of water & poetry: the two different images.
    It is poetry,
    a perpetual stream of sacred consciousness
    flowing ever and ever
    beyond the stars and planets and
    even beyond plenty of universe! ! ! (Report) Reply

    I love this most...the nature will evergreen in this world as water give strength to trees, and trees stand strong to protect mountain from soil eruption, but the water will flow from the mountain that you said could make it weaker to be plain land someday...but no, as long as tree living and the spirit, water giving...it will stay high and strong...someday water will dry they said and admit...but when the vapord water being a cloud and meet the mountain, it will goes down as a rain and flow again as pure water...for tree to green and and green to preserve structure of nature...every livng plays role in life, to equilibrating the power of nature force...as we must know nothing was created without each contribute a function in life/to others.... and over all i understand the whole poem in very beautiful made, i love it :) write more Ramesh_Unwritten Soul (Report) Reply
