Riding The Waves Of Imagery - Poem by Ratnakar Mandlik

Riding the waves of sorrow
Gliding through imagery
In pursuit of salvation
Flies a poet's imagination.

Bearing brunt of the legacy
Almighty's gift of inheritance
Absorbed is the hermit in a trance
In poverty too feeling quite cozy.

Omnipresence through inheritance
Omnipotent command over words,
The lord in celestial kingdom
Trades dreams to humanism.

Long live the dream merchant,
His fountains of joy to us enchant.

Topic(s) of this poem: human nature

    The poet creates poetry through imagination. And the God creates through a larger plan for all
    living beings as well as non-living objects, flora and sauna to enrich our experience which is
    beyond a man's comprehension. It is like a dream sequence in a divine setting. Thanks a lot.
