MOTHER DURGA

MOTHER DURGA

It is splendor of Goddess Durga

Conqueror of the world for peace,

Denouncing evil syndrome, Mahishasura,

Every autumn she comes home from heaven

On the earth with her four children.

 

A pluralistic imagination, with motherly

And triumphal dominance with truth,

Once worshiped by ancient dwellers of

Himalayas and Vindhyas, and later on 

It was to make imagination of Durga Shakti.

 

This autumn she prepares in artisans’ imagination

That concerns their creation will attract total population

Who will sing in chorus in reverence and in demonstration,

“Jai Mother Durga! Keep us all in peace, fulfill our dreams.”

This is the vision that portrays intimacy with life.

 

So close the prayer is to obey the rule of cell formation

Within the cell boundary in essential new one in life,

Skin copies skin in knowledge of equal sets over cycles,

People then say dream has some charms to change

The ethos of existence for congratulating Mother Durga.

 

 

ROAD BENEATH A FLOWERING TREE

ROAD BENEATH A FLOWERING TREE

Flowers talk there, rejuvenation,
Walks of life, formation, generation,
Fruits yolk inside, some of them see
The world, heading for spreading seeds.

Many days I traveled there in situations,
Discerning agony in forlorn constituents,
Road below the tree full of whispers,
Misery and fluency reside at juncture.

Talks of the world form avoidance,
Hide and seek make great concern,
People permit over action in turn,
They fail to learn children’s return

To the world where childhood is free
From duality, and people has right to learn
And abide the colorful presence divine,
Flower still forms the essence of teaching.

TO OVERCOME THE BARRIER

TOOVER~1

A concrete mass blocks
The way for free passage,
Sometime tides collapse
Sometime tides overcome.

Tides grow to leap over
Tides fall upon the floor,
Tides make silken touch
Tides move in circles.

Tides make philosopher’s choice,
Ancient and modern
Talking with mind of penumbra,
Circles are always in progress.

Tides erase footprints in wet sands,
Tides do work for conquering
Barrier’s stiffness,
Tides toss over it, in hurry.
