gajanan mishra

(3rd April 19sixty / Tikapali, Patnagarh, Balangir, Odisha, India now at Tapobana, Titilagarh, Odisha, India)

Not able to stay pure


I am not able to
Stay here pure, my dear.
And I know, my going to
Hell is but sure.

I know nothing is mine
And yet I am telling
I am the owner
Of everything and see it is me.

My own body and my
Own mind are not under
My control and yet I am
Rushing to control others!

No road to escape, my dear,
Hell is coming nearer and nearer.

Poem of the Day

poet Dante Gabriel Rossetti

Young Love lies sleeping
In May-time of the year,
Among the lilies,
Lapped in the tender light:
White lambs come grazing,
White doves come building there:
