Veteran Poet - 1,108 Points (7TH OCTOBER 1951 / Trissur, Kerala State, India.)


Shah jahan stared at the sight
Of creation he loved from
The prison made by his son,
Aurangazeb, and wept
At the thought of his days
With his lasting love and wife,
Mumtaz, in whose name,
The monument he built.

Great was his feeling
In recreating his love as Taj,
where he begged his son
To bury him alongside
His wife, so both their souls
Can forever be together.

Taj shines as the glory
Of love that is not said,
But crafted in stone, to make
And venture lovers last together.
