Flowers And The Stars - Poem by Susanta Pattnayak

High above is the garden
Wide and long, far and beyond
And when on earth the night falls
With its velvety veil
There in the garden
Soft sparkling wonders
Gently open their eyes, peep
And little by little blossom
The bright little stars in the sky.

Down when the dawn breaks
The heavenly wonders
Of the bright little stars
Glitter all over
In the gardens and on earth
And in beautiful little flowers!

Ignorant me and unenlightened my soul;
Above in the stars
Below with the flowers
Euphoric, lost I
Ethereally in the ether.

    Beauty of a poem incarnate! The fragrance of flowers and the magic of the white lass dancing above have well been conceived and portrayed by you.. (Report) Reply
