Roots And Heaven

How enticing the horizon looks !

My felicity lies in my own hands,

So enamored of clouds and rains,

My thirst returns to drink more.


I follow my gaze upon the earth ?

If stars beckon and steal my heart,

Much I rake up the bewitching past,

The more unbridled present turns.


Is luster real that lurks all around ?

Belies the besotted elan and eclat,

I rush toward the glimmers of light,

Can I ignore land of the wicked ?


Seek I opulence , ethereal love,

Steeped firm in the acrid roots,

Whenever I dare reach the sky,

I squelch my way in the sludge.


How long the roads may take me,

Turns appear and I have to bend,

I sip cup of ambrosia in my heart,

And watch squalor in my thoughts.


Nectar I relish till the last blob,

And bear all fangs on my way,

Much I try to be just and candid,

Ever I keep an eye on the evil !

      Thanks for stopping by and commenting so beautifully on this hub. Ireno, you are so right, we are, in fact, yin-yang and we cannot escape it.

      Kevin, I'm glad you liked this poem. Your comments are elaborate and penetrative and tell a lot about this poem. You see, we take precautions, avoid bad temptations, nurture compassion in our heart for the destitute and misguided guys, shun boasting, control our senses and always have a humanitarian outlook despite attaining admirable heights. I wanted to tell it all and hence this poem. Thanks for taking your time to go through this poem, appreciating it and your elaborate and kind comments.

      It was an amusing verse, Harishprasad. I was not familiar with all of the words and had to check on their meaning. Then I had to view it a few times to perceive the meaning of it - of which I am still not sure - but I will try. It seems as if you are in love with nature, flexible but unsure that you are on the correct path and always watching for evil as you go. I voted it up and more.
