Firmament - Poem by Dr. Ramesh Chandra Mukhopadhyaya

There is a firmament in every sand

There is afirmament in every piece of rock

But there none in a human heart

especially when the man is a politician

or an academician

The former gives you false promises

and the latter brags of false premises

The two together built the world

where we the common men and women

are pent up

Can poetry show us the way out from this

huis clois?

    This poem makes us ashamed of the loss of fire in us. Now, instead of where there was fire, there are stones and rocks solidified from the once free flowing rivers of fire. (Report) Reply
