Bronze Star - 6,475 Points (2/2/1981 / kottayam)

Life is Saline

I can hear the roar of the sea
Its form is saline
Merges to grief of the world
That blends its form in saline

My pedigree lies in this shore
My components are from saline
My fragments attire from you
So that my whispers are yours

Shrink all the forms in saline
So that my life will sink in tears
Outburst is so wide
Diversion is not a paradigm

Your tears revive as pearls
While my tears spill here silently
In that love shore you were splendid
Here in its backdrop tears keep mum

But my existence is in saline
These drops are merely few
Its bundle is reserved inside
So that I won't shrink anyway…………..

    I see the poem in different aspect of life and sorrow interpreted in the poem and surely salinity is for sea water and tears which have accurately told in beautiful poem that too from the innermost thoughts of the poet. A good achievement and creativity is seen in the poem in the text of language and meanings. (Report) Reply

    Saline that taste salty means in other way tasty...if no salinity no taste a world of tongue is barren..when tears fall from a woman it indicates the dirt has been washed from bosom and heart..tears for happiness as well as for grief...lovely thanks (Report) Reply

    Beautiful poem Salini. Very true said, the base of our life as well as our tears of happiness or sadness tastes saline. Beautiful comparison...
