Fire - Poem by Bhaswat Chakraborty

It burns in the stars
To make the universe possible
It burns in the stars
To have the heavens going
It burns the stars
to make the worlds end
whenever the end's inevitable

From the beginning-less time
Fire has been the main sustenance
of life and all its paraphernalia
Fire is your breath
And fire is your thirst
Polemically all the rivers
are nothing but fire
Fire flows to quench the fire of all!

The ancient mother earth
Still cherishes the fire
In the hearth of her heart
To keep her progenies warm
And her oceans so fluid

It is also the same fire
The fire in your belly
Your guts, your glory…..

P.S.
And so is your beauty
A fire par excellence

    It burns in the stars

    It burns the stars

    an excellent write, and the way that you express what you see
    in your mind, is far beyond the time.

    A master stroke from you. Loved it very much, sir.

    The fire that runs, the that burns
    Fire of the belly our food churns
    It is the beauty with fire glows
    Through the universe fire flows
    Fire ends the life's grand show

    Fire is your breath
    And fire is your thirst
    Polemically all the rivers
    are nothing but fire
    Fire flows to quench the fire of all! - This sums up everything. Heat is the undercurrent of all. Cold is only a relative aspect with respect to man's experience. Heat is the life of all. Heat is movement. Heat brings about various transformations. Actually, heat is only an experience of all lives. What does heat mean to a dead person? Our senses carry heat and light and so we are able to experience it in every atom of the universe. (Report) Reply
