SALINI NAIR

(kottayam)

It's from mud


Being In a pensive mood
I stretched my eyes to the pond side
On that long array I wide my eyes in wonder
It's a hue of lotuses

It floats and bops in tides
In between water mosses
Its base is stiff in mud
Still draw all to its side

Its petals are squashy and supple
Upright facing dazzling sky
Extended to the laud of sun
But close after his approval

Its origin depth inside mud
But glimpses the charming side
It never bothers its fathom
But lure all to its charm side


Deity abode on its crest
As it's pure on gentleness
Echoes something enormously
Not birth but act raises us to divine! ! !

    A lotus raises from mud and it is a reality that we see in this world of humans also. In rare cases the great individuals are coming from the very negative living conditions and actually they are seen more bright and ready to take the life challenges in its spirit. Like all other poems of the poets this is also very beautiful to read and recite as a valuable creation of poem. (Report) Reply
