Shelter Poem by Parameswaran Nair Damodaran Nair

Shelter

Rating: 5.0


Like a mariner's sleepless, anxious eyes
Catch sight of the greenery of a far isle
My hope with a sigh finds refuge in you.

Above his adrift yacht when seagulls circle
His heart leaps up with joy that the birds
Are none other than your winged love.

His soul elates in the scent of your soil,
He longs to land, carried to him by the gale
And his fear like fog in the sun vanishes

Might and mirth melt down from my peaks
My shelter is still distant, beyond the horizon
Where meet in unison reality and illusion

POET'S NOTES ABOUT THE POEM
When we are in difficulties we think of God and in the belief that good ending will be there we proceed. We are impatient and it will cause delay in manifestations. A spiritual seeker will think that a good day will come at last

Thank you very much dear poetess. When we place our hopes at the feet of God we feel a sort of satisfaction that our hope is half way through manifestation
