All Strife is Sterile

Updated on January 3, 2015

A fortune-teller deciphers it all,

Eluding to me a few moments,

To know the sole panacea of all,

Nothing more evil to the senses !


To my being I can be aware of,

To nothing can it brighten up ?

Ignorance and bliss is in being,

Every bit I live, every bit I savor.


My thirst turns me so berserk,

Hunger 'll sustain the life till last,

All play is pulsating on this shore,

And strife created is so sterile !


Source

Relish Days and Nights

Pleasure departs as it dawns,

As a flower, it attracts me wild,

Vanishes as a shadow goes,

Like fragrance that fleets fast.


Without night, day sparkles not,

Without space, things can't exist,

Life holds love staring end in sight !

Speed stuns the stagnant most.


I hold my balance in the chaos,

Now the breeze blows so cool,

When I cease love in my heart ,

I forget the abyss in my mind.


To prolong bliss in the sap of life,

I delve into my brazen beast,

To know and love, a real freedom,

To despise, despicable to the soul !


I deem not my journey as the last,

But keep my steps marching on,

So many times have I seen you,

Yet my thirst keeps looking at you.


How I looked into your eyes,

To pick up bits beneath the lids,

Have I understood your smiles ?

Felt perfect the grace of curves !


So much remains out of sight,

Why silence is still mute to me ?

I stare you like a desolate lane,

Feelings surge like strangers.

      Impressive Harish, seeing strife as if it is not even there. As if it comes and goes in light and shadow. I voted up, shared and pinned it.

      Insightful and lovely. Truly a pleasure to read. Indeed that which seems daunting is quite sterile when we really look into it.

      Harish, this is very deep, each line reveals strife, yet love binds the inner soul together and all thoughts become sterile. Beautiful!

      Ruby, you are so right. Love is a magical force, tender yet so strong. There is nothing that love cannot win. All strife in life springs from lack of love. Thanks for reading and appreciating this poem and extending your so valuable thoughts.
