Heaven Happens To Happy Man


Let people pause and ponder if they can,
To set mind’s prisons free of what-if’s pall,
For heaven happens but to happy man.

Right things begin to happen to man, when
Deep precincts hearken to soul’s silent call,
His mind pauses to ponder much as can,

Before taking a panoramic pan
Of world, to view it not like hospice hall;
For heaven happens but to happy man.

Sweeten, O man, sweeten thy salty pans,
Stop panning and posturing once for all,
Let every man pause and ponder as can,

To sit still so as to probe dwelling deep,
Not ere shatters a separating wall,
Heaven would happen to a happy man.

And when a free bird he feels once again,
The night when ends and light there’s yon the wall,
When people pause and ponder all they can,
Lo, heaven does happen to such a man.

The poem is affirmation of faith in the instinctive
and at times contemplative, uncomplicated life of man.
It repudiates indirectly highly intellectual and too
rational an approach to life.
