Rishi Knew That


Rishi knew that! -drkgb
======================
Energy-the spectacular present;
He knew- the truth incessant;
The future to be born and the dead the past;
Yet the illiterate in me spells the Law just!

Then too the earth was glob; rotating self;
In its axis core; to mark dawn-dusk-dawn;
The conjuring feat; to circle the sun oneself;
He knew every thing by hymn his own!

He knew the Full it is- the Poornam;
It doesn’t matter- you sum or dim;
Or you roar, chant hush or hum;
Or even nil; always in its full form!

Poem of the Day

poet Geoffrey Chaucer

The firste stock-father of gentleness,
What man desireth gentle for to be,
Must follow his trace, and all his wittes dress,
Virtue to love, and vices for to flee;
