English Poetry

Wherefrom Oh God,

This sudden unexpected opaque blockage,

That blinds my new found vision?

But now with Your merciful  grace and blessing,

The thick veil lifts up.

Slowly, very slowly though,

Until the brightness grows

Brighter than  I can bar.

And now I decipher,

The subtle difference,

Between the normal and the abnormal

Vagaries of mortal existence.

And I humbly realise,

That inspite of all our fortifications,

How delicately human life hangs

On an invisible string,

Swayed by luck, fate or destiny,

That can snap or strengthen,

Any moment,

At Your command!

Kusum

    Very beautiful & elegant poem indeed.
    Hearty commends…!
    Our divine gifts & helplessness
    So beautifully expressed in the verse,
    Our gratitude to the Almighty for everything
    Can only be our rightful bliss….
