Tirupathi Chandrupatla

Dwell a While in Ivory Tower

Day to day interactions
Needed for one's success
Crowd mind with an array of thoughts
Leading toward utter confusion.

It's time to build one's own
Ivory tower and dwell at its top
Far far away from the crowds
And create a period of isolation.

That period of tranquility
Provides the needed impetus
To proceed with routine of activity
And let life proceed at its pace.

    Occasional retreat into a private space, away from the din and bustle of everyday life is needed to give rest to our frayed nerves and fuel us with new energy! A beautiful poem! ! (Report) Reply

Tonight at Fu-chou, this moon she watches
Alone in our room. And my little, far-off
Children, too young to understand what keeps me
Away, or even remember Chang'an. By now,
