Does It Open? - Poem by Rekha Mandagere

The door was closed

But I patiently stood

Counting every second

Moments after moments 

Growing into long minutes

Never ending hours

Made the day hopeless

Praying aloud hapless

Why are the doors merciless?

Can't they have little kindness?

Saw a cloud of silent

Enchanting brightness

Inch by inch broadened

The door at last opened

Widening towards skyline

Status smiled ONLINE !

Poet's Notes about The Poem

We are in the age of globalisation. The world looks small and connected with the discovery of world wide web, which has become a part and parcel of our life. How dark life would have been without the knowledge of Information and communication technology. I look at it as a boon to humanity. My approach to it positive as well. I hope you to enjoy this with me. Thank you all: -)

    Yes dear Rekha, you described beautifully the happiness of having back the internet connection. Your poem reminded me to be grateful for it. I hope the next generations will be able to keep this priceless freedom. The chance to communicate as we do now, to create and share to learn for free is changing me into a better human being...Or so I hope... (Report) Reply

    I love the idea expressed and the way it is written.
    So true, Rekha, the world has changed tremendously.
    Now we can see the people we talk to over the computer, even at the other side of the world.
    Very nice thoughts expressed in a truly poetic way (Report) Reply
