A Float...


Every sea has two distinct shores
One of hate the other of love
One of strife the other of joy
In between floats, life barge to and fro…

    Short, sweet and powerful.
    Long back I have written a similar essay in hindi depicting life as a river with joy and sorrow as its two shores.... and there is a small poetry with a similar feel, which I shall post soon.
    Thanks.

    Ah, Kesav,
    Should we be floating always? We need rest and repair...which we have been doing for centuries. And so on sullied shores, the rest turns to warfare..with bouts of uneasy peace. Tranquility is just a living dream..
    Lets live on...This poem of yours is...very picturesque to say the least...

    Cheers.

    Your pieces do always make sense...True, in life's quest we always come in circles, to and from...beginning and end...etc. In between there should be a constant balance inorder to attain peace and harmony in this human world...I bow down to you, sir. Maestro...excelente! (Report) Reply
