Sincerely A Drop Of Tear - Poem by Ponniah Ganeshan

Far beyond the boundless sky
Going beyond and beyond explanation
Since time unknown….

Down below underneath
Going deeper and deeper like roots
Beneath.

I read only the first line of your death’s sorrow
The message of your death narrowed
To a nutshell
In this vast universe
Which is made of only mathematical table

You are now named as a corpse
And lying in a coffin
Waiting for burial as usual.

Extinguishing all your agonies of death
On the bed,
And when the bird of your soul
Took leave towards the state of nothingness
A dropp of tea
Falls in a corner of my heart.
