Poet's Notes about The Poem

Close strangers

It is strange that those closest to us are strangers
Strange bed fellows, spouse, parent- child, brother- friend and fellow travelers
Turning on your side and a few words of heart felt love and care is the only distance Between you and wife or beloved a few ‘light years' is the mental distance.

Those who are closed to us in relationship, distance and time spent
Why a simple sincere sharing appears a difficult achievement?
Is it because we are too close familiar and immune to each other?
A sad fate for family and friends lonely but together!

Like lonely in a crowd even a joint family there is no escape from quality dialogue
Or else, we are to face a generation and gender gap, even a break
Life seems to have lost it's moorings and break
We must establish a warm body- mind and soul dialogue.

We are to cultivate compassion and empathy
We are to step into other shoes and not just an advisory sympathy
And equal's communion in intimacy
A community of free individuals with internet of silky delicacy!

Poem of the Day

poet Sir Walter Scott

The moon's on the lake, and the mist's on the brae,
And the Clan has a name that is nameless by day;
Then gather, gather, gather Grigalach!
Gather, gather, gather Grigalach!
