A Karma Yogi

Rating: 3.0
at the last turn homeward
from a long walk
there stood a well-grown bird
with its tiny flexible neck
upward tied with a piece
of white cloth and it fidgeted
within the blindflod

it's not supposed to know
who's its killer nor
the table it's going
to decorate...

its purpose is
simply to serve

indira babbellapati
It is a beautiful poem.

A profound read Indira. I was just reading the book by Swami Vivekananda about the Karma Yoga and remembered me the allegories with birds there - the family birds who fell in the fire in order to serve and feed their human guests. Allegoric and profound read indeed - yours as well.

If a Karma Yogi or Bhakti Yogi is lead to Gyaan Yoga by his purity, he does not have to end up on the supper table! He becomes Stithtyapragyaani. Its nice to read stimulating poetry!
