Border - Poem by Bharati Nayak

Oh Dear brother
See,
How a border
separates
A land from land
People from people

BORDER IS NOT REAL
It is imaginary
It is drawn by man
It is for divide
But see the breeze
Can the border
Stop it to blow across
Can the border
Stop the sunlight
To illuminate across

Like breeze
Like sunlight
Love transcends
It is never confined
It is not limited.


Oh brothers
Come
Let us hold hands
Let us make
This world
One country.

Topic(s) of this poem: humanity, love

    Like breeze
    Like sunlight
    Love transcends
    It is never confined
    It is not limited.

    A lovely write on a sensitive theme, the cause of all wars and root of hatred too.
    You have captured the reader since top to bottom flawlessly.
    Loved the theme, its growth and the stream of evolution too.
    Regards.
    Subhas

    Wonderful imaginary. Boarder separates land to land and man to man yet we should cooperate each other. You have nicely and touchingly painted. I quote..
    Like breeze
    Like sunlight

    It is not limited.

    to MyPoemList, Sister! but now you can wake up and realize it was just a dream: one country.
    and, as nice as it might sound at first, one country can have its own problems. probably ALL do now. [i think even Shangri-La had its problem(s) ! ] And the larger the country, perhaps the bigger the problems may be.

    i don't think it is the map borders which cause the problems so much as the different languages, religions,
    levels of civilization (whatever THAT means!) , the differences in climate, energy and food sources, and the disparities between the haves and the have-nots.

    ok! i may be sounding too much like a professor of something! i'm just a dumb retired american male ex-postal worker! !

    i'd say PH makes a SMALL contribution to world harmony. let's take what we can get! i like it.

    bri :)

    Yes! See how a border separates people to people! . This is very common in Africa! ! With People speaking the Same Language but, divided with Borders. Thanks for sharing this poem with us. (Report) Reply

    you speak the language of Plato and the likes of sir Thomas....one can only wish that wishes would grow a mane and run like horses... :)
    until that happens it will remain a pipe dream of us poets and those visionaries who by default are a bit removed from reality.
    you have shuddered in poetic grace and cast away the yolk of cleavage in these few lines...
    lovely

    Thank you so much for your lovely comment.When poets unite, when their sentiments echo a free spirit 'when their hearts meet, they form a country, distinct, which has no border and no lines separating them on the basis of citizenship, caste, creed, colour or religion.

    Love transcends all borders....... it never discriminates! It encompasses everything and subdues everybody! The exhortation at the end to hold hands together in love.......makes the poem powerful! (Report) Reply
