Alms Of Diamond Poem by Parameswaran Nair Damodaran Nair

Alms Of Diamond

Rating: 5.0


Stamped, and crushed under wheels
There lies on the rough road a flower
It bears my heart's colour
And the scent of my blood.
The aura glowing around
Is my beaming dreams
That never yield to death
Nor can be buried alive.
It flashes into my brain
A glow-fly's light in darkness,
'To a beggar a diamond is a stone
to throw at street dogs! '

A poem of great depth! When I read the closing lines, I am reminded of another similar quote from the Bible.... ' 'Give not that which is holy unto the dogs, neither cast ye your pearls before swine, lest they trample them under their feet, and turn again and rend you'. Sometimes our sincere efforts to help others may hit back on us as a boomerang!

Thank you very much dear friend. The bible quote is hundred percent true and relevant when our charity, kindness or humanity and the like is given a cold welcome
