Samanyan Lakshminarayanan


# # sad


sad...
man grows old too soon
even when the whole world
stands there afresh to remind him
of a birth
every day
every minute
every second
as a new birth
sad indeed....
man grows old too soon

    Before our eyes people get old, older........we also get older..........the mirror starts singgering at us......I too often felt of this phenomenon........when I look at our near and dear people.......good write.........your strokes are getting more and more philosophical and profound my friend.

    It's a sad fact, Sam...a cycle of life...to be born, live, die...a new life begins for someone and will experience the same fate. So it's important for us to enjoy our life as we all know it will end up soon. Sensible write! :) (Report) Reply

    yes sad indeed but the trick is too be happy whilst alive

    Very true Samanyan....but growing old is really a state of mind...A man is as old as he thinks he is...to state a truism! ! (Report) Reply

Young Love lies sleeping

Lapped in the tender light:
White lambs come grazing,
White doves come building there:
