Treasure Island

Ramesh T A

(28th August 1950 / Madurai, Tamil Nadu, India)

Tears as Rains!


Tears come out of joy for a brief time;
Tears come out of sorrow for a longtime!

Ice clouds of sky melt into rain like tears;
Is this tear come out of joy or sorrow....?

Out of body heat too tears come out of eyes;
After long browsing before computer too it is!

But further heat of body dries the eye tears;
Only blurred vision then can be seen, ho.....!

Tears of eye are for good health to maintain;
Without tears none can live ever on the Earth!

So also without rain Earth cannot survive long
And none can enjoy beauty, love and joy ever!

Melting of frozen ice gives birth to many rivers;
Mingling with oceans they go up to fall as rain!

Melting of heart gives birth to tears of joy or sorrow;
Tears as rains heart will always shed for life to go on!

Poem of the Day

poet Helen Hunt Jackson

The month of carnival of all the year,
When Nature lets the wild earth go its way,
And spend whole seasons on a single day.
The spring-time holds her white and purple dear;
