They All Left The Park - Poem by Amitava Sur

Jesus was with Mohammed in a park near the lake
Buddha, Confucius and Mahabir Jain
Were sitting on another bench,
Eating some ground nuts, peeling off their shells.

Buddha said ' Hey Jesus - so long where had you been'
Smilingly he replied ' I was with Mohammed,
in his house during the last two days '
Mahabir was asking ' Hey - Confu, where is Hu En Sung'
' Taking a little more time to carry his own chair'.

All those friends were in a laughter
And welcome Hu En Sung.
They sang some light songs
Clapping and dancing together.

All the people, being gathered around them
Were humming with delight in a smiling face.
People around were of different color and beliefs
The park was filled with tranquility and peace.

Sun is set, darkness loomed
Silence is hovering around,
They all left the park.
The park is now in deep dark.

    All religions preach universal brotherhood and all true prophets emphasize on the need to be bonded together, breaking the narrow boundaries of caste, creed and religion! Love should be the binding force!

    So you have brought together all great souls under one parasol! ! More commendable is the light air you have created. I nstead of making them preach great moral principles, you let them eat pea nuts, crack jokes, sing and dance.... Yes, such light moments lift the burden off life....!

    Congratulations on reaching this milestone! Conquer still greater heights, Amitava! Best of Luck! ! (Report) Reply

    Amitava, I enjoyed how you brought these great and wise men together and put them on a human level i.e. talking and eating some nuts, enjoying one another's company. Their conversation was humorous and enlightening, singing, laughing, dancing like ordinary people. All religions together in eternity or heaven (the park) a peaceful happiness, the darkness felt serene, all wise men working together for mankind. A really great poem, Amitava.
    Thank you for all the wonderful comments you gave on the poems you read recently, I totally appreciate them. Congratulations Amitava on your 150th poem! ! ! ! I knew you would do great! ! RoseAnn (Report) Reply

    Man can not live in peace unless the society is socially controlled. Almost all the sociologists believe that religion is the strongest device of social control. Religion is not an opium for the society it is a law that is backed by our belief. God is same, destination is same but there are many routes and all lead to eternity.I am hopeful that a time will come when all the moderate members of PH will sit in the beautiful park of eternity where there will be no dark and where there will be lasting light of eternity.
    I congratulate my dear friend Amitava for writing and uploading his beautiful 150th poem. (Report) Reply
