WATERING' THE 'UNWATERED'


Concentration is less water
More water is dilution
Stones, boulders more strong concentration
Sand and the like fine concentration
Water and the like just dilution

Side by side rock and water coexist
To each other rock and sand give birth
To a mix sand and water give birth
The Mix to a rock gives birth

Water on rock evaporates
Rock on water stays
Sand on water or
Water on sand never

The rock of old age
Strong concetrated knowledge means
The Mix of young age
Fine conceterated knowledge means

Fine Concentration watered can be
As sand and water mix
Strong concetration watered can never be
As rock on water stays

The watered is the sand
The unwatered, the rock
Thou shall never water the unwatered

Poem of the Day

poet Helen Hunt Jackson

The month of carnival of all the year,
When Nature lets the wild earth go its way,
And spend whole seasons on a single day.
The spring-time holds her white and purple dear;
