Treasure Island

M.D Dinesh Nair

(Thrissur/Vijayawada)

TELL ME WHY..


Tell me why your words continue to be a solace to me
When I drown in the trumpets of times cruel?
Tell me why your presence is conspicuous to me while your being away
When I am lost in the midst of men and women in silks?

Tell me why your graceful faces and looks come in my dreams
When you have often veiled your eyes and mouths?
Tell me why your care and love descend on me incessantly
When a strange habitat emerges around me now?

My granny said, 'When everybody leaves you, God will be with you, my kid'
And she was quoting the age-old concept perhaps like all.
I honour the frail mouth`s chanting lie bur have to say,
'When the old faiths get buried we feel the real human love'.

    Dear Nasarudheen Sir,
    I honour your comment but cannot think beyond the crystal clear materialistic interpretations and will not seek to learn about the extended explanations on god particle that led to the' big bang'' I have never been subscribing to any faith since my convictions have won over the conventions imposed by the apparently confusing doctrines of philosophy of searching for a God.
    Dear Madam Valsa,
    You have obviously showered praise on my granny who did not think of 'His true form'. (Report) Reply

    Sir, may I point out: It is the buried humus that the saplings suck by osmosis to grow.Sir, God is the Generative.Organizing, Destructive Energy.The research of God particle speaks of the Force that makes us move ahead.We cannot deny: Kathopanishad,5: 8 and the Bhagavat Gita,18: 61.

    How true what your granny once said! God cannot manifest before us in His true form! But He impersonates himself in the guise of our friends! ! Enjoyed! (Report) Reply

Poem of the Day

poet Alfred Lord Tennyson

It little profits that an idle king,
By this still hearth, among these barren crags,
Match'd with an aged wife, I mete and dole
Unequal laws unto a savage race,
