Flames Of Desire - Poem by ramesh rai

When flames of my all desire will extinguish
the necklace of my thoughts will disperse
my mind will find a new quest of
Love and Peace

My heart will cheer with eternal joys
I shall be flying above the endless sky
with full freedom and enthusiasm
gleaming like a morning star
in the deepest darkness of sky

I will see only you around me
I'll be asking so many questions
and the reasons of my past life

I know I won't get any reply
I will find out the answer
from your endless ocean of wisdom

I can certainly say
I'm not a luminous object
but not only me, the entire creation
is your reflection, if so
you are the truth only, rest are images
vanishes, when it is switched off

My all thoughts and desires
are being driven by you only
I am standing alone on the sea-shore
of profound creation, counting the waves

I may be mistaking in my counting
still I verify errors of my life
if these are mine or
reflection of your imaginary shadow

I ask all the creatures
if any one has complaint against life
but none replied, as all are satisfied

No one can snatch the colors
and fragrance of a flower
No one can stop the tides
of ocean, no one can stop
the blowing air, no one can stop
the burning of fire

No one can stop
the twinkling of stars
no one can stop
shinning of sun and moon

If so, why any one will make
any complaint against the creation

Perhaps, these all are evils of my mind
repenting on my past life

God has sent all with full protection
with all resources of life.

    When desires are extinguished and our self is merged in the eternal entity, our quest after love and peace is materialized!

    A beautiful poem of profound thought! ! Inspiring.....and delightful! !

    Excellent Poem. There are two parts of your poem. First is the flames of desire and the second is the creations of nature. Flames of desire should be driven only by the Wisdom and only then the life will be like a morning star in the deepest darkness of the sky. You have said that when flames of desire will extinguish, you will find a quest of Love and peace. It is absolutely right. But you should not extinguish it because without this Wisdom cannot do more. Also your question has not been replied by the creatures because Nature has already given so many things and the time is to repay the same. Thanks. (Report) Reply
