Caves - Poem by Pradeep Dhavakumar


Inside their mouth many sages have sat,
And in the deep darkness, spent years;
And breathed the air; so damp and wet,
And lived on available rock-tears.

Yet, in this dungeon, healthy they've stayed,
And found the path of pure joy, of bliss;
And from their closed, inner exile,
Understood how the outer world exists!


While some with their feet find,
Some, within, with their minds create;
While some are pushed by life,
For a sojourn in its dark estate.

But no matter how dark and deep,
Its darkness always sheds a light;
And those who do absorb that light,
Have forever in life, shined bright!
