Sudam Panigrahi

(26/01 / Jharsuguda)

Thanks for being with him

On that scorching afternoon,

I’d no knowledge, my Lord,

You were with him,

Behind him,

Frolicking with his

Flying dreams.

You knew about the ticking time,

About the swirling wind.

The distance bridged slowly,

Between good and bad time.

And when he crossed the road,

Calamity just banged on him.

Thanks Lord, you were with him,

As he got up and said,

“Papa, happened nothing.”

Oh Lord, what a collision!

Nothing happened,

Only a stretch of time

Without any scratch passed.

You were with him for hours,

When he was nervous,

Withdrawn and frightened

And inside a safe cocoon.

We again crossed the road,

Fear was there broad.

But at the next hour,

He smiled and frolicked,

Mimicked actions

Of Spiderman and

Favorite characters of

Cartoon films.

God you’re great

Great is your presence.

I saw you in his smile,

On the road,

In the sad time.

Thanks Lord,

Thanks once again.

He is with us

Once again.

Defeating death

Smiling with us

Once again.

Poem of the Day

poet Robert William Service

Three times I had the lust to kill,
To clutch a throat so young and fair,
And squeeze with all my might until
No breath of being lingered there.
Three times I drove the demon out,
