sathya narayana

1+1=1


I dispute his permutations
At least twice a day; him, I curse
Me; he often pinches and wrenches
Well! I understand his compulsions
He too does sympathize my follies
Again, we laugh off our excesses
Runs thus our rollercoaster romance

Yet, lingers a feeling of emptiness
I asked him, “Why this gulf between us;
Aren’t we very, very close friends;
with consensus of minds? ”
He smiled, “You understand me. Yes.
But you don’t know me in essence”
I asked, “Hey! What is the difference?
Both words sound me in same sense
When do I know you in wholeness? ”
Trickled down HIS words mysterious
“When you become I, and I …..you”

    This poem (my opinion) means that we need to become aware and to acquire knowledge of the part that is missing and take the possession, through knowledge, of whole..For this purpose we must know each other perfectly and we must have a convergent thinking..I'm starting to understand you.
    great poem...10+++
    Thank you for sharing. (Report) Reply

    You describe a deep friendship that builds over a long period of time. Very well thought out and described. A '10! '

    How to nibble our presence in this musty pensive way of life, way the World goes...
    Me; he often pinches and wrenches
    Well! I understand his compulsions
    He too does sympathize my follies
    Again, we laugh off our excesses
    Runs thus our rollercoaster romance

    Yet, ...........
    everything passes the really....
    I dispute his permutations
    At least twice a day; him, I curse
    ....we must pent it (Report) Reply

    This is a different kind of work Sathyaji. In fact, you have masterfully done with the conflict.Alas! when I becomes me, Me shifts to the location of I and the gulf remains.Hence,1+1=/=1 and the Mathematics Wins.

    Roll down 107 dices with 107 faces each, then count the probabilites, am not of 'math' but I think an infinity of peole the result would be. So a man can be one with his shadow only even if people share many oulines. (Report) Reply

poet Charles Stuart Calverley

He stood, a worn-out City clerk —
Who'd toil'd, and seen no holiday,
For forty years from dawn to dark —
Alone beside Caermarthen Bay.
