The Boat - Poem by ramesh rai

The boat is floating in the river
throughout its life
rowing from one end to another
facing all tides of river
always discern direction of wind
rowing in direction of wind

when the water is deep
storm is blunt
the boat is rowing with full enthusiaism across the river

it has no fear of deep water
or blind storm to make dive

    Deep and powerful! Every word
    coming from you can stand on its own
    because it clearly carries the
    message! Really thought provoking
    and touching! Thanks for sharing dear
    brother! You really a fountain of
    inspiration! Blessing from New York
    City
