Golden Fish - Poem by Anita Sharma

bend and keep picking up rocks,

from the ground

have shine like gold

like ecstasy familiar

but look,

i am a golden fish

i am already in the ocean

Topic(s) of this poem: love and art

Form: Ballad


Poet's Notes about The Poem

inspired by Khusro dariya prem ka, ulti va ki dhaar,
Jo utra so doob gaya, Jo Dooba So Paar.

Khusro, the river of love has a reverse flow
He who enters will drown, he who drowns will get across.

    well here let me explain a bit about this poem bend and keep picking up rocks it means we always have worked up for which is so materialist we have only seen shine like but we haven't looked for the actual bliss we have never found that, we are so stuck, but for the bliss we have to go much deeper to fine the love god we have to go more deeper and further, this poem is inspired from famous quote by ameer khusro, , khusro dariya prem ka ulti vaa ki dhaar jo utra so doob gaya jo dooba so paar, , Khusro, the river of love has a reverse flow
    He who enters will drown, he who drowns will get across
