Ho Soul! Your origin and destination
Still obscure for our normal thoughts
But you were here as one among us
Making waves and weaving knots
Succumbed to various obsessions
We observed not your recessions
Shunning off your mortal possessions
You dashed off to join the celestials
Stunned are we yet to recompose
Seeking solaces to console our hearts
Muted mind breeding total trance
Franticly glued to the fond memories
Birth and death a recurring phenomenon
As arrival always denotes departure
The winter may vanish for spring to bloom
But your absence is eternal never to be filled
Without you there we have to march on
Within our heart having you enshrined
Wherein resides the love you imparted
Not to be rubbed off by time’s eraser
Sow the seeds of good deeds while we live
So that they will grow into fruitful trees
Serving and shading our dear and near ones
The only way we mortal can be eternalized
Waste not life in amassing treasures in plenty
When we leave we cannot take even a penny
Try to make the harvest when we are lively
Once the soul departs the body becomes a dummy!
A poem, what people call soul-searching ! Excellent !!
‘Muted mind breeding total trance’- what a pregnant thought…after going through this poem I was literally transformed into a trance. I must add Santhi-” thou art a blessed soul” with such stirling ideas.
Wonderful, so tranquil, well done!
