C. P. Sharma Poems

Either be a lamp
Sitting at a place,
Emitting light beams
For swarming moths' solace.

As stream of consciousness
Changes the course,
Its infinite dimensions arise,
When we rise above this body,

one fine spring morning
sitting in my chair
newspaper in hand
basking the sun

Mind wanders all around,
It never needs a ground;
Its nature defies control,
It’s used to rock and roll.

(I met Kabir)
This morning when in trance,
At my body I had a glance,
Me, its composition amazed,

When I am on Polo Ground
Many a poem I have found
Friend Krishana there I meet
Him with a new query I greet.

What use is the rosary?
What use is the sword?
If heart doesn’t enshrine
The Name of the Lord.

They say civilized society needs rules
They who don't follow them are mules
The civilized the laws of Nature flout
Try to knock them out with foul bouts

Our body is an amazing drug store
Brain, the doctor, health restores.
Administers drugs & dosages accurate,
Without side effects vital force generates.

God is One,
He is the Truth.

He manifests in Nature:

Standing in the Hall of Fame
As the dark shadows of life
Through its latticed windows
We peep the patterned eternity


O Food, your glory is so great,
Strength of limbs you generate.

It should be of our own choice,

A Bumble Bee

This, my body is made of clay
It sheds off a gram each day

Your words come out from the soul,
If you know the story as a whole;
Or let me tell as I have known it,

I am in love with my life,
What if it is full of struggle & strife!
In life I never had a sense of loss,
Though all my life was tumble toss..

Nature everything provides,
Let us in Nature take pride;
Nature is our friend and guide,
Let us in Nature confide.

Autumn lamp bugles the change,
Lace patterns go off mind-range.

The cool moon drops upon window panes,

In Muse’s Ivory Tower sits
Wisdom and wit transmits
Filigree of imagery knits
Golden hue from there emits.


With love in the air all around,
Cupid's floral arrows hound,
My love at first sight I found,
Now my feet are not on ground.

Barack Obama you are great,
I am amazed, US celebrates;
So long show piece statue,
Liberty’s soul you liberate.

The Best Poem Of C. P. Sharma

Be A Lamp! ! !

Either be a lamp
Sitting at a place,
Emitting light beams
For swarming moths' solace.

Or be a moth,
Dance around the flame,
Forget your being,
Claim oneness with the flame.

Either be a forest,
Vast vividness embrace;
Lion and lamb live in it,
In diversity do their food trace.

Or be a seed,
Vast forest in embryo;
Get lost into the soil to see,
How does eternity mop & mow! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! !

Chandra Sharma's writing is an excellent example of how the written word breaks down all perceived differences. Kipling was wrong, East and West do meet...
