    I have been an occasional contributor to PH, and would welcome comments
    from readers who agree with me or dissent. Now in my mid-eighties, I cannot
    retire from the world and its profuse signals - of both assent and dissent; but
    mostly, 'just pass on'. There is no 'aadi', no 'antha'. Existence is the essence
    of the Present Continuous Tense: the Everlasting 'Now'. Enjoy or Endure.. Best.

    Your energy is uplifting, dear beautiful mind. Carrying everything in style, attentive to details, gracious and considerate, your presence is simply comforting.
    Thanks for being you. A joy to connect...

    I enjoyed the opening stanza.... So realistic! When there is only faint light one feels the rotund chair tops and the hulk of the table while proceeding to the balcony.... The mist covered sky being compared to a white washed canvas is a great image and the hills and trees slowly emerging from cover is beautiful!

    That obscuring veil of mist becomes
    A diaphanous gauze of translucence,
    Asserting hill-crest and hill-rock
    Along my trans-urban horizon.

    A picturesque description of the scenery watched through a diaphanous gauze of mist!

Best Poem of Ananta Madhavan

Order Out Of Chaos

Panting up the slopes
With the wind brewing in the trees,
And the mountain line like a row
Of aged teeth decaying,
And the cold air in hunger
Nibbling at my warmth,
I think of the jagged beauty that disturbs
The neatly ordered boxes of my mind;
And I think of the rich irrelevance around me,
And I know that I will never smooth
The scarred and pimpled visage of the earth,
Nor rearrange the scattered stars
In jewelled patterns.
I have no secrets from the mocking peak.

Read the full of Order Out Of Chaos

The Philosopher

Others may hack and saw,
He troubled the root
With a question mark.
