Treasure Island

Ramesh T A

(28th August 1950 / Madurai, Tamil Nadu, India)


Can there be love without lust?
Are love and lust interconnected?
Can love and non-attachment go together?
What can we say about love eternal?

Is universal love called platonic love?
Is platonic love living only in friendship?
Can there be love without friendship?
Can a decisive definition for love be possible?

Elders’ love of children is unique;
Fathers’ love of daughters is nice;
Mothers’ love of sons is universal;
Love of boy and girl is wonderful!

Man and woman love each other perfect!
Romantic love between them is story
Full of fun and pageantry in literature
That develops love between lovers ever!

Mystery of love at first sight can’t be fathomed;
Matter of emotion is beyond the scope of mind;
Emotion and spirit are beyond the realm of mind;
Emotional feeling of love overshadows mind ever!

Sans friendship and friends love develops uniquely
And solves many unsolvable problems despite enmity
Bringing eternally broken relationships to life again
And which is why love is the greatest wonder here!

Love is selfless whereas lust is selfish in life;
Love may be partial but never intends to harm;
Love bears all pains to see the object to be happy
And makes matters successful for the loved ones!

Friendship nurtures non-attached platonic love;
But love transcends all relational bonds in life
Elevating it to the level of divine on the Earth
And makes life sustainable against all odds ever!

I AM not One who much or oft delight
To season my fireside with personal talk.--
Of friends, who live within an easy walk,
Or neighbours, daily, weekly, in my sight:
