Ramesh T A (28th August 1950 / Madurai, Tamil Nadu, India)
A BEAUTY TRUTHFUL FOREVER!
Nature assembled its beauty in human form;
Man has chiselled beauty in temple statues!
Lobes of brain are the clouds of sky….
Heart of man is the mango of trees……
Kidneys of man are the beans of fields….
Black tresses are the cascading water fall of hills….
Beautiful face of lady is the bright full moon…..
Black eyes of lady are the black grapes of vine…..
Red cheeks of lady are the red apples of Kashmir…..
Red lips of lady are the petals of red roses…..
White neck of lady is the marble white conch of sea…..
Soft white hands are the trunk of the plantain tree…
Bosoms of lady are the ripe mango fruits of garden……
Beauty of waist is the shape of ginger we see…..
Shapely legs are the chiselled pillars of temples……
Feet are the web feet of swans swim on the pond…..
Such a beautiful lady is the frozen walking statue
Chiselled by the divine sculptor, Brahma of heaven!
Lively statues of gorgeous beauties are true ever…
Indeed this beauty is truth – truth beauty forever!
[A Tribute to my favourite Poet John Keats! ]
