Harish Mamgain is fond of the craft of writing. He loves poetry.


The Dance of Existence

Birds chirp, clouds float up high,

The wind intrudes into the space,

Trees spread their effusive arms,

People busy in their daily chores.

My thoughts mingle into them,

All that makes my outer world.

The sunshine spreads its wings,

Above the trees, upon the leaves.

Over the earth and all the space,

A tossing leave tickles my mind,

Even strange guys look my own,

With all awe, I drink the scene.

I want to venture into them all,

The flight of birds, their euphony,

Touch of light upon the plants,

Look blithe turn of existence.

And dance of my own breathing,

Everything looks so graceful !

A bird flutters and merrily sings,

My ears pick up threads of song.

Trees, wind, sunshine and people,

Blink of an eye, a fleeting moment,

Everything delights to the core,

This is but a moiety of the whole

My inner world is no less lithe,

The outer and inner make life,

Enter into alleys of my eyes,

A maze of passions lies ahead.

I'll touch soft with my mind,

And conceive an epoch eternal.

Beauty, grace and all fragrance !

I have kept all treasure intact.

All sins and virtues tarted,

The inner casts a real spell,

Even stones want to speak,

See silence's ecstatic dance.

To know me, dig into my mind,

To love me, leave your thoughts,

Take refuge in the inner world,

And cut all the snares of mind.

See love perched in my heart,

And a way straight to your heart !

Things are thoughts we contrive,

Beings are ideas into our mind.

Bliss waits, tests our patience,

To turn our sour into happiness,

To see outer in and inside out,

We both arrive at Eden 's end.

      Kevin, you are right. This is an attempt to portray both our outer and internal world. I'm glad to have received your beautiful comment and appreciation. Thank you.

      Hi Harishprasad,

      When I read "The Outer World" I thought of our loving nature around us.

      When I read "Venture Inside" I thought of someone saying, "Do not just look at my outer self. I also have personality and emotions."

      Thanks, Devika for stopping by, reading this poem and appreciating it. This is a dichotomy of outer and inner world.

      My friend this is very special. This part catches my heart "Besotted with awe, I drink the scene. I want to venture into them all'

      While reading I lost my place and read this backward a few lines to catch my place again. And wow! So I read the whole thing in reverse. And it still read great. I wonder what that means.

      Thank you
