VIPINS PUTHOORAN


*blessings* - Poem by VIPINS PUTHOORAN

The eyes of twilight gaze at a candle,
Burning under the baluster of a churchyard.
Breeze fluctuating its flame softly,
White doves of love fluttering their wings
And murmuring the words they've ne'er spoken,
Under the eaves they unite and praise God
Priests of the past preaching salvation-
At the red-carpeted pulpit of people.
But the lambs sleep under the sea of sin
Leviathan stirs in their ears
Lo! Heart of man is the art of God
And in sculptured minds purity fade
Blessings are still there from God
Still there- flaming for us
But our hearts desire darkness as always
O'Come closer to the light,
That burning for you and me.
Come closer to the light,
That melts like a candle.

    Heart of man is the art of God.
    But his sculptured mind is fading its purity.....these are the two lines I loved and thought about deeply, really loved this one :)

    I too think that the 'blessings from God is still flaming for us.' And hopefully some day, we will come to this realization, and 'get the light burning for us, ' before it 'melts like a candle.' Very profoiund. Thanks. (Report)Reply

    Jeepers-creepers! It has been highlighted in the poem as modern man is moving away from god, away from nature, away for humanity, away from good, he rushing like fool for bad things. These line have become my bowl of cherries...............

    'I gazed at a candle light in twilight
    Burning under the baluster of a churchyard
    And its flame fluctuating in soft breeze,
    Can be withered its wick in a wild wind.'
    Noble work with noble passion - A well articulated and drafted poems of yours. Two hands went up - one to pray god to change the attitude of the little man and another for the poet for his noble message. Perfect 10+++++++

    Its a joy to read something that has a spiritually enlightened message, and meditates god as being a journey and not the destination. Very serene and pure of Joy. (Report)Reply
