644. Chameleon Mind! 241110 - Poem by Raman Savithiri

Early morning touching the horizon
Pleasant red is the color of the baby sun
When it is above the head how hot
The sun turns to be dazzling a lot!

One day black and invisible is the moon
Another day bright and beautiful as a boon
Some days quarter or half is the crescent
Opening the petals of lily to expel scent!

Seasons change from one extreme to other
How many garments and how many ornaments
To wear in a year they give to earth the mother
And see her changing face moment to moment!

As the time wheel reels from era to era
Mountains and oceans shift from place to place
Continents too move and change their shapes
Either expand or contract the territorial gapes!

In this changing universe from second to second
What is the wonder if man too changes often
Trying many masks of different emotions?
How would any relation be constant to bind?

Friends and enemies change their spots
Love and hatred emerge from a same heart
Is there a steady spring to fill my hollow pot?
Is there anything stable to rest my weary feet?

Why this caging in the world of changing mind?
What is hurting is not the world but my mind!
Devi! Shelter me under Your name ….Nay
Melt me in the flame of Your name! 241110
