The unknown singing bird sang
Several songs for some years;
The songs of the singing bird
Soon created news and history!
Humanity lives by faith against the disbelief of many;
They say all they can and ask for deliverance by prayers;
Will the prayers reach to whom that has been sent ever...?
Like radio transmission, TV telecast prayer reaches to Him!
As a sparkling Diamond among the nations
India stands beautifully in shape and size
On the Map of the World attracting all!
For, India, the land of beauty and greatness
Stock piling of weapons has triggered Arms race!
Arms race is going on since the end of World War II.
In the Cold war period it went on between USA & USSR;
Now the game of balance of power goes between nations!
Lonely as a cloud I was walking on the beach;
Pain of love lost I was trying to forget in Nature.
Reclined I on a sand meadow musing over Moon.
The most beloved soul of my grand aunt has passed away
Friday night donating her eyes and body to medical college
For study purpose to medical students aspiring to achieve
great feat in medical line for serving human society ever!
For winning in contest
Both intelligence and luck are needed
Though great skill is!
Can economic development of a nation be based on
Mere economic statistics only that shows rate of
Growth and status of deficit every month of a year?
Festivals of deities take place all round the year for people to pray for peace;
Yet, woes of ocean people go on swimming after shipwreck to reach shore;
They cry for help and escaping to shore is indeed a great miracle happening;
That happens between the transaction of man and God for survival!
Past is past anywhere forever here;
Never comes back from west to east
Or from north to south in our life;
For, time moves forward as spirit!
According to every means, there is a benefit as its end;
Good means has a good end according to its implementation;
Bad means may bring many benefits but the end is bad sure;
Those things are historically inspiring all who see truth!
Countless Stars as the sands of seashores of the world
In the dark night Sky shine bright in the wonderful Space!
As the falling sands into the hole of the hour glass of time
Stars disappear in the Black Holes of galaxies in the Universe!
I am seventy two
Going on seventy three
I am a philosophic Poet
Being a Poet I love Nature
Marriages and divorces are balancing with each other nowadays!
Why should there be so many divorces so early and fast now?
Are the marriages made from blind love without any guarantee?
It looks so funny to read about such loves, marriages and divorces!
Adventure of romantic love offers opportunity to lovers
Enjoy heavenly pleasure to the level of the Universe and
Come down to the garden of paradise on the Earth to live
Human life best against all barriers with courage high!
Like moths many nations rushing towards and playing with
Nuclear fire not realizing that it will destroy them and
All others making the very existence of the world a dream!
Humility to see perfection in all works
of art or science or Poetry by creativity,
achievers are doers of miracles in the world!
Ramesh Y A
Living away from Nature many are stranded nowhere,
From where know not where to proceed or what to do!
Mechanically trained in the name of discipline all lose all
And never able to realise what is their natural self here!
New Moon is black Moon, but full Moon is bright Moon we enjoy every month;
But two full Moons also come in some month called as blue Moon beautiful;
My Moon and my everybody's Moon says Browning as in a dramatic monologue
Reminding all of the great bard Shakespeare for such fun in Poetry ever!

Songs Of The Singing Bird!
The unknown singing bird sang
Several songs for some years;
The songs of the singing bird
Soon created news and history!
All the life songs of the bird about
Nature and culture are literature now!
Knowledge and experience give wisdom
That gives a system of life to live;
This is called human culture.
For all, the beginning and the end
Are in Nature only and so it is
The friend, philosopher and guide
Not only to poets, scientists and artists
But also to the whole of mankind.
From first melody to last funeral song
All songs say only about human love!
In reality the more we love the dear one
The more the dear one goes far away!
The tragedy of loved one lives in mind
Ever plunging everyone in endless tears!
Love is the source of all creations in evolution
From blue green algae to man in the world!
Without love nothing can be created and
Great things worthwhile are achieved by men!
One such great thing is poetry of great poets
Absorbing heart, mind and soul of man ever!
What is poetry? Poetry is the magical expression,
Words of poet's heart echoing in the minds of men!
Building castle in the air and capturing in camera
Poetry does to produce the album of poetry book!
Collecting honey from flowers to build beehive
Poet bee weaves ideas together to compose poetry!
Arranging beautiful ideas focused on a subject
A great work of art poet creates in poetry with
Sound, sense, substance and seriousness in words!
Beautiful, sweet and light music of poetry absorbs
Heart, mind and soul to entertain and instruct with
Inspiring ideas to live a happy and prosperous life
With confidence, courage and endurance in the world!
Expressing experience of life in meaningful verse
Poet finds favour with everyone everywhere here!
Compressing many ideas in a nutshell, poet makes it
Possible to reveal Universal truths from trivialities;
Such a magical art in any other form of literature
It is not worth trying other than in poetry alone!
The all absorbing power of poetry is an invaluable art
That has royal reception everywhere in world literature.
Sweet songs of Nightingale, beautiful dance of peacock
And so on will be immortal and unforgettable in poetry!
So, the songs of the singing bird, whom we call a poet,
Will echo eternally in the hearts of men and world of art!
