A Heaven And Two Hells - Poem by M.D Dinesh Nair

A heaven opens its doors
And two souls enter,
A king and his rod of power;
And somebody sings a song musical.
Two hells open their doors
And ten thousand souls enter,
A man and his dead brethern;
And a cry for the second burning is heard.

The meadows of the green planet go dry
The sheep bleat, the shepherd goes missing
The mothers show their breast-nipples sealed
The infants wail, the fathers wage a battle to be lost.

Once again the heaven opens its door
And the king and the rod wait to enter.
So do the two hells with two doors
A crowd is pushed in once more.
The burning flesh chokes the nostrils
But the sweet song is played on....

A bird flies unto the sky
As the torrents swallow its feeble frame.
The green planet celebrates an existence.

    A Heaven And Two Hells
    An excellently constructed metaphoric poetic gem which highlights superbly the state of our beautiful green planet at the moment. Visual detail is breathtaking. A very thought provoking write which caused me to stop and think how much our wonderful planet has deteriorated since you first published this poem, dear friend Dinesh. The King with the rods seems powerless to create heaven out of one hell, much less two! Thank you for sharing this truly exquisite write. I enjoyed reading very much and I, thank you for kindly sharing. Blessings always, dear friend (10++++++++++ from me!) (Report) Reply

    Beautiful creative thinking made into a good poem and narration of hell and heaven is little exaggerated. (Report) Reply

    a good write. I've been told there is one heaven to come, but one hell on earth and the second one will come later. (Report) Reply
