NAKEDNESS


When thoughts are naked,
Truths are born;
When words are naked,
Silence is born;

When objects are naked
Light passes on;
When sky is naked
Spring is born;

When earth is naked
Deserts are born;
When hearth is naked
Hunger is born;

When clouds are naked
Droughts are born;
When shrouds are naked
Corpse are Strawn;

When eyed naked
God was laughing,
When looked at naked
God was fooling.

When genders were nude
Species multiplied;
When blunders slept nude
Species mutilated.


When words became naked
Meanings danced upon;
When world became naked
Creator descended again.

Naked beauty is very strong
Untouched it is penetrating,
Upon touch
Life’s Mystery awakens the being…..

Poem of the Day

poet Alfred Lord Tennyson

It little profits that an idle king,
By this still hearth, among these barren crags,
Match'd with an aged wife, I mete and dole
Unequal laws unto a savage race,
