*as If To........... - Poem by Subbaraman N V

I go along the deep forest
as if to count all the trees!
I fly soaring above and above
as if to count the stars in the sky!
I sail fast in the deep sea
as if to count the number of fishes in the blue waters!
I walk slow in the cool Tar desert
as if to count the sand grains on the earth!
I know fully well that I may not succeed
as I try to keep the society peaceful and prosperous!

Poet's Notes about The Poem

Sheer inability to achieve certain things in life leading to frustration- cause of this scribbling!

    I can totally relate to this superb poem. I was always in trouble as a child for taking my toys to pieces. I just wanted to know how they worked. It never entered my head that I didn't know how to put them back together again. (Report) Reply
