Successive Life


Successive Life

On your heart-
My faith is my breath.
On your heart-
Laying head I see the sky
At mid night mixing hand and foot
Restiveness on your breast
Rolling about as storm begun
What a misery of you
On your heart-
Grounding leg, crossing river-sea
Bringing sun, throwing flower across the
Demarcating of green paddy field-
Dance beside the fairy colors the heart
On your heart-
Fair of moon-star and bird
Sun’s play at mid night
Spreader arms and legs of Himalaya
Raft and sailing boot.
On your heart-
Playing flute, mixing tune in river’s wave
Snatching blue of sky, filling heart
With bird’s color
In every birth shall return-to keep hand on hand
Stepping one after one to every successive life.

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,
