Cradle To Cosmos - Poem by Prabir Gayen

Cradle to Cosmos
*****
Long ago with trembling hand
did I hold the hand of my mother,
Heart was Warm with the
dream of blissful days,
Colourful were the days
for Unknown Mystery ahead,
Cosmic bliss rained lovingly
With no pain of supposed strains,
Eyes were full of dreamful
and ambitious hopes,
Invisible wings soared high
and touched the stars
Unknown filled the heart
with wonderment,
Twittering of birds and crimson rays
did awake us
from long night's nutritious rest.
Vast green field with blue heaven
and rustic lore - an Eden.
God was but image of festivity.

With the March of time all is lost,
the song of birds now
bears message for unthought idea,
Dreamful and easy days are hardened
for life's essential promises,
Like a canvas mind is painted
with rough draft,
Still it is boiling in the
hot water of life,
Confused rhythm of madding crowd,
And ceaseless onslaught of mind's ache
wrought the booming brim of empty brain,
Love's manifold distortions and
crudest part of carnal delusion,
The painful cohabitation of past
and present I am torn apart.
You are O my master!
Only you are for Me,
Though indifferent to my pain and
Confusion,
A draught of cool water,
A nectarous flow of Elysian Pond.
Let me die to my Ego,
My aspirant mind to put my face on You,
With similar beatitude like childhood,
Let me Cradle from creation to Cosmos.

    An expression of devotion...at this time of self-offering you bring along everything that went into the making of you. To devote yourself you must be yourself...to be yourself, you cannot cut yourself off from the process that made you. Belongs on my list of Favorites. (Report)Reply

    Either friend or family,
    we all wake up to try and forge the best friendships.
    The growth of the spirit or a scientific mind
    is dependent upon us becoming a family of best friends.
    Sir Prabir Gayen...
    I should confess that I really am fond of you work.
    My name is Thabani Khumalo,
    I am your humble follower.
    I believe that poetry is alive.

    A beautiful and fabulous poem. When days past start to feel like dreams and present belongs to too quick of a moment life still needs our attention. A prayer, an intense surrender brings all the solace to anguished soul. Thank you for sharing this lovely poem. (Report)Reply
