Praveen Kumar In Celestial Glow


I Came As A Spark


I came as a spark
To light your wick
And ignite our life, full and bright;
You gave yourself
To my warmth,
But vanished afore life gathered light.

Bound in darkness,
Spark without a wick,
Like ghost I linger directionless;
Mere heat, no light,
No place to halt,
I wonder how bring an end to this.

I seek not a wick,
Don’t light other life,
You hold my spark all your life;
Where you vanished,
Whence you come back,
No sign anywhere to guide along.

I know how you long
For the spark I bring
To light your life to immortal height;
While allow not else
To light your life,
How I look elsewhere to light other life?

I’m set apart
To light your wick
And ignite our life, full and bright;
You’re set apart
For my warmth,
We wait for the other, life after life.

Poem of the Day

poet Christina Georgina Rossetti

Where sunless rivers weep
Their waves into the deep,
She sleeps a charmed sleep:
Awake her not.
Led by a single star,
She came from very far
