Love. Poem by Nabakishore Dash

Love.

Rating: 5.0


If love is sun,
its power,
penetration ability
of its radiations
are beyond man's estimation.

If moon,
it is a good companion,
its coolness and beauty
can not be compared
with any one.

If sky,
its vastness
can't be measured.

If ocean,
its depth
can't be fathomed.

If weapon,
its winning ability
is out of imagination,
the true conqueror
universal cosmopolitan.

If sweet words and good deeds,
it would create wonderful
inter-personal contact,
effect is eternal, unlimited.

If flower,
it sends its fragrance
in all directions,
gives aesthetic pleasure,
don't pick it off,
water the plant,
let it bear fruits and seeds,
seeds of love to be
always sown.

If friend,
add to it,
it would increase
in arithmetic progression,
its antonym is enemy,
subtract it,
love becomes dominant.

If joy,
multiply it,
would increase
in geometric progression,
divide, share with all,
it would be doubled.
Its antonym is grief,
divide, share with all,
it would be halved.

Love, therefore,
be the basis of
all our thoughts and actions,
to rid the world of
most of the ills.

Love in us is the only thing that can smoothen our heart and make the world a peaceful place to live in. LOVE is the main thing in our thoughts and actions. God is utmost Love, followers of God do their best to make this world a better safer and more peaceful place to live upon.
