I am obliged to you for selecting two old poems of mine for your commendation, which I value immensely. We need such readers, as a musician who performs in public needs the clap of at least two pairs of hands.Best for the New Year to you. AM

Our eyes misted by cataract may not be able to see beauty as children do! They perceive things through clear eyes! They in their pristine innocence are able to feel wonder even in little things! The question at the end is puzzling....! Can we ever comprehend the mysteries of the universe! Then who else can......? Only the Great One who made the universe!

There is so much beauty to behold in the billions of little things all around us. If we can only see what children see that we would have less fantasy and more reality. Well done my friend!
