Growth Of Friendship - Poem by Rekha Mandagere

On the stream of life
May the boat of radiant smiles sail
In the depths of the tuneful mind
May the rays of friendship bloom

May the lamp of love blaze
In the hatred filled hearts
May the ecstasy of love unfurl
On the expansive sea of friendship

May the days roll on
In the relentless pursuit of truth
Desist inflicting pain on others
People then come closing up in ranks
And there sprouts, the magic of Friendship!

    A well articulated piece written with insight to capture the call for Universal Brotherhood Of Man bearing in mind the interrelatedness of reality. A powerful poem penned in poetic diction. I concur with the poet's convictions. Thanks for sharing. Please read my poem MANDELA - THE IMMORTAL ICON. (Report) Reply

    If the selfless friendship blooms,
    in the hearts of human,
    the revolution materializes,
    in the minds of human..
