(27/08/1977 / Dehradun, India)

the darker side and the brighter aspect


The darker side of blindness was an unrelenting
camouflage of austere black,
while brighter aspect of the same was a sensitive
tuning of the hollow ear
drum.
The darker side of a wounded bruise was gushing
streams of blood flowing,
while brighter aspect of the same; was firm resilience
to anguish and pain.
The darker side of the ocean was drowning to death,
while brighter aspect of the same was; a cluster of
striped fish swimming.
The darker side of squashed vegetable was clouds of
insidious stench
emanating,
while brighter aspect of the same was blissful manure
for an artillery of dead
shrub.
The darker side of a computer was a total entropy of
handwriting,
while brighter aspect of the same was crisp outlines
of calligraphy ornately
printed.
The darker side of the twin horned cow was that it was
fat and
indolent,
while brighter aspect of the same was that it suckled
gallons of fresh milk.
The darker side of the sun was acrimonious rays
cauterizing tender patches of
skin,
while brighter aspect of the same was complete
fumigation of the water logged
environment.
The darker side of a candy chocolate was a plethora of
cavities in mouth
palette,
while brighter aspect of the same was waves of
felicity submerging a person in
euphoria.
The darker side of moon was that it diffused feeble
beams of opalescent
light,
while brighter aspect of the same was that it
illuminated gruesome darkness
with rays of hope.
The darker side of residing in a jungle was immense
fear of savage beasts,
while brighter aspect of the same was bathing in
crystal waters of the virgin
river.
The darker side of being a dog was being treated with
loads of contempt and
malice,
while brighter aspect of the same was ferociously
growling canine teeth at
strangers.
The darker side of death was traumatic pain and
tumultuous sorrow,
while brighter aspect of the same was to give someone
a chance to live.
The darker side of love was infinite perils lurking in
the society,
while the brighter aspect of the same was relishing
the feeling of being
cared.

Poem of the Day

poet Henry David Thoreau

My books I'd fain cast off, I cannot read,
'Twixt every page my thoughts go stray at large
Down in the meadow, where is richer feed,
And will not mind to hit their proper targe.
