like an Albatross

If you have spread your hands like the wings of an Albatross
please continue.. please do not fold them again like a beggar's fulfillment
the waves will descend, will carry you further
further over the jubiliant Ocean
down below.. on that belowest, the cold waves will wish you a warm flight
do not let your mind spoil the journey
this journey bereft of any thoughts
any thoughts from your mind
just allow the waves that descend, will carry you further
will take you over the mighty ocean
who is mightier?
a wind will whisper
always whispers as if it wants to bereft you from this journey
please do not listen! O just do not listen!
just fly.. into an airless world of intuition

    Birds and butterflies fly so careless and free,
    By their instinct and intution they live you see!
    While with our twisted knowledge and greed -
    We have lost our innocence;
    The good wishes of the Lord with which Adam and Eve were blessed!
    I liked reading the Albatros! It also reminded me of Coleridge's 'Rhyme of the Ancient Mariner'! 10! -Raj (Report) Reply

Poem of the Day

poet Alfred Edward Housman

The time you won your town the race
We chaired you through the market-place;
Man and boy stood cheering by,
And home we brought you shoulder-high.
