gajanan mishra

(3rd April 19sixty / Tikapali, Patnagarh, Balangir, Odisha, India now at Tapobana, Titilagarh, Odisha, India)

In distress


In distress, I pray
I pray in distress
O my Master, before You
I know You are here before me.

The content of my prayer
Is not known to me, O Omniscient
I know only You are here before me
And taking all steps for the welfare of all.

I pray, only pray, my dear
Without any thought without any word
You are my words your are my thoughts
You know better than me what would be better.

Poem of the Day

poet Wilfred Owen

All sounds have been as music to my listening:
Pacific lamentations of slow bells,
The crunch of boots on blue snow rosy-glistening,
Shuffle of autumn leaves; and all farewells:
