Treasure Island

Somanathan Iyer


Concepts 7


Movement is the movement of creation
Without which world remains static
Except the sky move all the elements of nature
World moves along with times though in different paces

Praise is the prized possession of opportunists
Seeking favors missile of praising is fired
Praise boosts the ego blinds the confidence
No exception is even the God as all the prayers praise his glory

Tendencies differ depending on trends of time
Tendencies change depending on vagaries of time
Complicated is human tendency compared to that of animals
For they always remain grateful to their masters and protectors

    Movement, praise, and tendency nicely conceptualized. What about human movements some desirable and some undesirable? Thank you for a nice poem. (Report) Reply

"Arcturus" is his other name—
I'd rather call him "Star."
It's very mean of Science
To go and interfere!

I slew a worm the other day—
