Vijay Sai

(30 12 1975 / Trichy, South India)

Paradise Lost


I woke, I woke, with moist eyes,
Oh! I don’t know
that would be my last awakening!
I found myself
in a journey of paradise,
rendezvous with pleasure,
For now I noticed that,
I’ve been discarded
this time,
Oh! no! not again,
I flew to nest, yet again,
in this world of unexpecting soberness,
awaiting to strike at which stroke-
and when!
to be a free bird,
lost out of vision in the blue sky-
Yet another dawn after dusk,
blooming with a dream!

    Went to the trouble of writing a sensible critique but this silly website kept insisting that the verification code was wrong although carefully copied several times. (Report) Reply

    your lost paradise is limited to a dream, and still it is vivaciously fine in its succession. the poetic galore is well-maintained, and deserves much appreciation. the only thing i am not very happy is the limited content. thats ok. may be because, i had great expectation from the title, when you jotted me. wonderful. great to know you, dear Vijay. i just posted a few, if time ever permits, please bless.

    Good thought. I remember 48 years ago I read a book of Paradise Lost, Paradise Regained. When I finished it with a very little knowledge of English language, I was ready for paradise.
    However, it is our human being that we look for the paradise, but if you check out my poems, until we are in this Earth we never have it. Life is a school room, where we get lessons. If we solve one, we go to the other one. We can arrive to a peace in our soul and true happiness but we still have to solve our every day upcoming problems. (Report) Reply

    Thank you for this lovely poem, involving vivid imagination! I suppose we all have our paradise where and when we choose to. For many, this abstract concept lies in poetry and the rich introspective consciousness we get to explore as poets...My I invite you to read my poem The Poet which incorporated another type of proverbial paradise I think you may enjoy!

    A melodramatic modernised manipulation of the title of the Old Classic piece... An arresting poem.... (Report) Reply

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:
