Foreign Land

In a foreign land
I heard the ocean roar to the mountain in anger and pain
And the mountain indeed withstanding,
the ceaseless beating element,
stood in silence like a sinner accepting punishment.
In a foreign land,
I heard the evening breeze crying to those melancholy leaves,
like a sinner asking for forgiveness.
In a foreign land,
I heard the temple bells ring & turned around to my surprise,
i saw Goddess of love Venus.
Learned that she was deceived by her love.
In a foreign land,
I turned towards the roaring ocean and asked her to stay calm;
She refused,
Likewise the leaves to forgive the breeze,
She refused.
In a foreign land,
My starving eyes looked for an answers from the anguished Goddess,
She in her agonised smile reading my mind responded,
if there was only a word in dictionary, i could express my feeling.
In a foreign land,
I opened my blind fold
And learned that love was just a word.

Poem of the Day

poet Dante Gabriel Rossetti

A little while a little love
The hour yet bears for thee and me
Who have not drawn the veil to see
If still our heaven be lit above.
Thou merely, at the day's last sigh,
