Feel for all


Feel for all
- - - - - - - -
Sometimes I think
Of things I have done
Right and wrong
Of dogmas and doctrines
I have me shut up in
To live life mine
And to feel the sunshine
Yet never my soul
Has ever felt
That this person
To me does not appeal
So, you nor can I love
Nor can I serve
I am living and wakeful
And I know the truth
A flower is a flower
Whether it blooms
Here or there
Leaves same fragrance
To the one who tramples on it
As to the one who cherishes it
The flower feels not the difference
Hence to no one refuses its fragrance
Gives what it has to give in humbleness
Likewise as a token of our love
For the sake of truth
Let's feel for all
And give love without asking love…….

    A wonderful write once again...I want to read this poem in somewhat different way.....

    Flowers are so innocent that its fragrance can be felt by all, whether one crushes it or one loves it.
    Our beautiful nature give us everything with love for all but its not in human nature to give and take it back in same way.
    This is the main difference between human and nature.....
    Very true said, one feel calm in the midst of nature....

    I loved reading each lines... (Report) Reply

    Love is often treated as a give and take experience of the ordeal of human relations. You have seen reason in upgrading the feel and as a poet with a fine approach to delicate thoughts in life you have once more traced the case of a surging love that stays back amidst us. A fine poem Deepakji.. I give you a sure 10 for it. (Report) Reply

    We can feel for all
    And give love without asking love…….

    This is the quintessence of all the teachings of Jesus Christ and all other religious teachers and sages! If we can rise to that level, our life is glorified, no matter what other deficiencies we have! I enjoyed your comparison of a flower! It delights and spreads fragrance equally to those who kiss it or trample it and never discriminates!

    Only a man of your largesse of heart can accommodate friends and rivals alike! A great write! (Report) Reply

poet Charles Stuart Calverley

He stood, a worn-out City clerk —
Who'd toil'd, and seen no holiday,
For forty years from dawn to dark —
Alone beside Caermarthen Bay.
