Grandeur Of Anonymity

There is Grandeur in anonymity
Nameless celebrity
Sans name and individual personal biography
It is still part of oceanic universality.

Being a dropp and ripple in cosmic time and space
It has supreme egoless Grace
Biography and identity don't really mean much except ephemeral fame
After all what's there in a name!

Shakespeare had a valid point
In the mind boggling field of dynamic consciousness
Why etch your name on the bark of a tree, winning a silly point
Billions of nameless workers, artists and thinkers have enriched our cultural awareness!

After all history personal and global is one damn thing after another!
In long run who is going to bother?
Except egos habit of name fame, greatness and immortality
It's great to be anonymous and sleep into even non existentiality.

A secret nameless gift is the highest in god's reckoning
But the gift is given for the real need and not fleeting want
Gift with expectation of return in money, love, gratitude, fame and publicity is just accounting
Secret and anonymous gift or creation is like a sacred chant

Poem of the Day

poet Christina Georgina Rossetti

Where sunless rivers weep
Their waves into the deep,
She sleeps a charmed sleep:
Awake her not.
Led by a single star,
She came from very far
