Lamp-Boy - Poem by Madathil Rajendran Nair

A tree silhouetted against
The silver winter sky
And setting crimson Sun
On the canvas of consciousness
An exalting sight

The impatient artist
Then moved the screen
Lo, the black night dawned
Speckled with a million dots

He then packed his palette
Left the place
Leaving me the lamp-boy
In my aloneness
To light the canvas
Throughout the night

    The magnificence and grandeur of God is truly reflected in the sublime way that He paints the earth with his time-brush. A graceful poem laced with poise. (Report) Reply

    Human being - one of His creations is like the lamp boy trying to shed some glow on the canvas of consciousness. He, The Impatient Artist works as he pleases. Beautiful imagination neatly presented. Thank you. (Report) Reply
