Five Fingers Are In Water Rice - Poem by Kumarmani Mahakul
As per thought the action is planned,
One of our neighbour employees tells
After retirement he is happy in living,
As his five fingers are in water rice.
In his right hand he is taking rice curry,
This is water rice as per his choice plan,
Along with vegetable fry this is served,
With due love daughter-in-law serves it.
Son with affection takes care to him,
He has previously desired for this joy,
Being father he has done his duty earlier,
Now this is his turn, he is reaping happiness.
Whatever we wish as per thought we get,
Every thought leads to action and reaction,
Sometimes this is difficult to understand,
Karma's journey is difficult to recognize.
God says that by wisdom we can know,
We can understand life and cosmic journey,
Person with high ambition achieves more,
Person with low ambition satisfies basic needs.
Five fingers are not equal but these are needed,
Each one is dependent declaring same freedom,
Water rice is tasty while taken by five fingers,
A hand brings unity among fingers is the great,
A person plans to climb Everest climbs Mountain,
A person plans to climb hub of straws climbs a step,
Wonderful wisdom is hidden among five fingers,
Some are satisfied in water rice and some in rice curry.
