One big Universe.. Many bugs!


One big universe
as a whole integrated
diverse inter woven threads
darkness and light
hand in hand dance
on floor of space

Like terror and peace
Dancing together on
earth's floor, KaLi's dance
Sharada's divine veena's tune
avidya and vidya
shadow caused by light.

There are dark corners
where demons live merrily
and that place is our heart
above the dark thick layers of flesh and blood
only a thin attractive skin
Even on angel's skin live
horrible germs wait for time.

Under skin deep layer of love
creamy layer of learned people
thick layer of darkness prevail
sustained ignorance acts
Hands stained with blood
bloodless hearts hatred filled
Spilling blood, killing innocents.

poet Henry Lawson


The old year went, and the new returned, in the withering weeks of drought,
The cheque was spent that the shearer earned,
and the sheds were all cut out;
