POEM OF THE DAY
Before The Birth Of One Of Her Children
All things within this fading world hath end,
Adversity doth still our joys attend;
No ties so strong, no friends so dear and sweet,
But with death's parting blow are sure to meet.
The sentence past is most irrevocable,
A common thing, yet oh, inevitable.
How soon, my Dear, death may my steps attend,
How soon't may be thy lot to lose thy friend,
We both are ignorant, yet love bids me
These farewell lines to recommend to thee,
That when the knot's untied that made us one,
I may seem thine, who in effect am none.
And if I see not half my days that's due,
What nature would, God grant to yours and you;
The many faults that well you know I have
Let be interred in my oblivious grave;
If any worth or virtue were in me,
Let that live freshly in thy memory
And when thou feel'st no grief, as I no harmes,
Yet love thy dead, who long lay in thine arms,
And when thy loss shall be repaid with gains
Look to my little babes, my dear remains.
And if thou love thyself, or loved'st me,
These O protect from stepdame's injury.
And if chance to thine eyes shall bring this verse,
With some sad sighs honor my absent hearse;
And kiss this paper for thy dear love's sake,
Who with salt tears this last farewell did take.

A Song Of The Degrees
Rest me with Chinese colours,
For I think the glass is evil.
The wind moves above the wheat-
With a silver crashing,
A thin war of metal.
I have known the golden disc,

The Truth I Must Tell
If I should lie
I never meant to be mean
I did it only to protect you
Because I don't think you can handle
The truth I must tell

A disease grounded all human beings
The Horrible Reality Of The World!
Death of parents leaving their off-springs as orphanage children is pitiable scene
Most unbearable for the compassionate hearts seeing them roaming about the streets
Begging for food and becoming beggars before they know anything about school
As hunger is the first realization of painful state of life in the world that darkens life!
One is enough
but stick hold
just abide by
what your conscience says
An Evening Rain
the hot sun took life
its juicy youth and joy
it took and made man tough
The dark sky above
Shows the thickness of the clouds
As it starts to rain.
The long blades of grass
dance and sway in good rhythm underneath the sky.
The Serene Ocean
The salty water
sleeps without a single sound
as waves are not seen.
A Frightening Sound
There's a loud thunder
on top of the huge mountain
as the lightning strikes.
The eagle soars high
flying with very strong wings
and eyes so focused.
In The Woods
Deep in the forest
various voices filled the air
coming from the beasts
A Source Of Life
In the giant mass
the water cascades over
the rocks in its path
Smiling face with peace of mind
feels the great joy deep inside;
Leaving the sorrow behind
and nothing in life to hide.
