Beneath The Heights... - Poem by M.D DINESH NAIR

Beneath the heights
Flying along the tracks of floating rain clouds
My kite flies not caring for me ever.
Behind the kite my thread trails.
My hands hold it ever.

When the clouds begin to rain my kite sways
But as the sky clears he smiles.
I am not seen by him still.
Beneath my kite my thread shudders.
My hands hold it ever.

Above the heaven`s zenith
He flies, he alone flies.
Far down in the earth`s nadir
I stand alone holding my thread.
Beneath me the tremor begins...

    The philosophy is well exposed through an apt metaphor…nice contrast between the creator and created through apposite diction.[ Zenith and Nadir]…
    You have in some way measured the heights and shown the glimpses of the almighty… thanks for a good poem
