    Fascinating imagery and powerful thoughts- some with reference to Indian religious texts and mythology. Interesting to know that he was a lecturer/professor in the English department of a college in India but wrote in his native Kannada. Jiban-ananda Das, superb Bengali poet, was a lecturer/professor in the English department of a college in India.

My Lotus Red

A bright red lotus has bloomed today
To passers-by, what a fragrant Entree!
The wind, the bees, or the gentle spray:
Who needs an invitation to a party, eh?

The water trembled gleefully,
Tickled by the golden rays.
In how many ways do I love thee?
