I asked the rising sun in despair,
Why don’t you freeze?
On the wake of global warming;
I asked the glorious full moon in disgrace,
Why don’t you hide and become ‘no moon’?
Having witnessed the violence on femininity;
I asked the stars in anguish,
Why don’t you stop twinkling?
While seeing terror attacks on humanity;
I asked the vast blue sky in grief,
Why don’t you cover yourself with cloud’s blanket?
On the crisis of global intolerance;
Then reply came from………
The Sun and the Moon,
The blue sky and the little Stars;
Why don’t you wake up and turn inwards?
To witness all the chaos inside;
Outer world is just a reflection,
Of everybody’s inner hate and violence;
Thus the only solution for all these is,
LOVE and ONLY LOVE.
The brook emanated from
The fountain of my heart,
In your search, has now
Become turbulent and intolerant;
The ray of light radiated from
The heart’s fire of longing,
In your hunt, has now
Converted into gigantic volcano;
The cold breeze escaped from
My restless and swaying heart,
In your quest, has now
Transformed into ruthless storm;
The tiny cloud of hope formed
In my heart’s empty sky,
For seeking your company, has now
Consumed my heart’s whole sky;
The tree of optimism sprouted
From my heart’s bare land,
In your search, has now been
Standing with fallen leaves;
Seeking you, in sheer madness;
Rebellious thus became, my
Five elements of existence;
But I know…….
Brook will merge into sea;
Suppressed fire will erupt;
Storm will calm down;
Clouds disappear on raining;
Spring will come again;
I will find you one day, thus.
