On recovering love!

Updated on July 5, 2014

love enabled!


life restored...

When I was ‘bout to die

from a broken heart

you came to me

like a sanjivani!

My latest flame

thou art,

I shall be

your sanjivani too!

My eyes devour you

as no fire that rages wild


any other fire

at any cost!

My lips carve out

your contagious name

in the curious ears

of the desperate listeners!

My ears are deaf


for the honeyed words

flowing out

of your eager mouth!

Our hearts do diverge

only to converge close

into a forceful unison


the sparkling eyes!

      Sanjeevani (or Sanjivani) is a Sanskrit word (Old-Indian language)

      - the immortal, the infinite life, life giving

      sanjeevani-ayurveda-mantra-heilpflanze - In the Hindu mythology Sanjeevani is described as a magical plant which can wake dead people to the life, or which lends immortality.

      This plant is mentioned in the Ramayana, as, during the war with Ravana, Lakshmana was wounded and was killed almost by Indrajit. Hanuman (the monkey God) was called, to bring Sanjeevani from the mountain Dronagiri in the Himalayas. When he reached the mountain, Hanuman was not able to identify the herb, and decided to lift the complete mountain, and brought it to the battlefield.

      A lovely poem. Now I'd love to know the meaning of 'sanjivani.' Words are interesting and become so much a part of our communication that we don't always realise that others may not know some of them. Recently I wanted to write the word, 'tifling' in a hub, but the computer kept changing it to 'rifling'. We used it for a thread hanging from a hem, or something similar, and thought everyone knew it. Now I've found that it must have come from my Cornish grandmother! So please do tell what it means!
