Ramakrushna Sahu Quotes

  • ''Poetry does not speak out truth but keep it secret. It does not serve but inspire to explore. It is not the form but the essence, the fragrance of an unseen flower.
     **
     Poetry is born not out of mere thoughts and words but of living the reality from moment to moment. Life lived in any external medium is but a life of corpse.''

Best Poem of Ramakrushna Sahu

The Sunrise

Tearing apart the womb ofdarkness
A child of blood red was born,
Without any signs of labour
On the mother's face
An expansion of unrippled blue
Washed away all the wounds
From the face of the fatherhood

Light was overflowing
From the smile of the child,
There came an end to deathness,
Wings trembled to open
For the ecstasy of flight
The lips whistled songs,
And words fell in rythyms

All flew in the wave of song
There was no sign of sunset nearby
Perhaps far far away beyond imagination.

Confession

I have not yet discovered
The source of light
That throws images
On the screen of my eyes,
I am yet to come out of darkness
And whatever I have told
Of accurate shape and size
With so vibrating words
Are only the images
