How long will it be?
Or will it ever be?
Oh my blazing sun,
Know you light the favourite white bulb!
Ardhanareshwar, yet another form of Lord Shiva! It is the union of Purush and Prakriti, a man and woman in plain words, a necessary harmonious balance between two complementary forces. Belief of being one, existing without duality. This is the concept of marriage in vedic philosophy. Interesting, isn’t it? I may write in detail about it someday, but for now, enjoy the Cinquain Poem!
Poetry is a rhythm, a song, a thought, a message or anything that an individual has in his heart. Its recital is something that has almost become extinct which is why UNESCO decided to celebrate today, 21st March, as World Poetry day. This day was adopted as International Poetry Day during UNESCO’s 30th session held in Paris in 1999.
To celebrate this day, I have tried putting my thoughts in Cinquain form of poetry. A cinquain poem is a five line verse that do not rhyme. This form was created by Adelaide Crapsey. When I read the first cinquain poem, I thought of it as silly, but realized that the examples that I referred might not be up to the mark. There is always a beautiful spark in poetry which this form could easily catch with its unique style. I have tried to explain what cinquain poem is and I hope you enjoy it!
The first line has just one word which is the subject of poetry and it’s the same with the last line of the poem, but it should be your subject’s synonym. Second line has two words that describes the subject of the poem. Line 3 should have 3 action verbs that are related to line one. You can convey your feelings in the fourth line in four words, but it has to relate to the subject. And yes, the title should be same as your subject. Enjoy and happy international poetry day!
His hands moved
Swiftly over the stone,
Holding the hammer and the chisel,
His eyes blazed like the sun.
“My masterpiece”, he whispered,
And smiled a million smiles.
From the corner of the lit-up room
She gazed at him with reverence in her eyes. Continue reading “Masterpiece”
Alzheimer’s! I don’t think any of the other diseases or disorders are as painful as this one. The difference in pain caused by other diseases and dementia is that in the former one, the patient suffers, but in the latter one, the loved ones of the patient suffers the most. However, not able Continue reading “Permanent Damage”
In the midst of sand,
The war of bucket was fought.
Where the lights flowed,
The fight of the balloons was sought.
Would tomorrow be a despair?
For my children to be born,
Or maybe for me too,
At a wrinkled age?
Future is said to be unseen,
But, the dried well ness says,
There would be chaos for a drop,
Where now, the flow is ignorant.
How to destroy the wall of ignorance!
May be it can start with “I”,
And extend to the surroundings,
Only for the better of my children.
