Poem: Let Bygones Be Bygones by Hari Prasad S and Surabhi Kaura

There was a beloved blossom in life

Agreed, it was treasured and worshiped.

Extolling the virtues of a paradise,

The Gardner nursed the bloom day and night,

Like a circadian rhythm.

One day, it dried like an old shriveled hand,

And his inner-souls voice wailed in profundity;

Perhaps a self-introspection:

Hey! Look at the Gardens sanctuary;

Many of its flowers welted and dried,

And that which dried, did they ever bloom?

O Gardner! The garden never makes

Hue and cry over the dried flowers.

Let bygones be bygones.



The garden is haunted by many,

But few are conclusive who see the crowning glory

The wizened leaves

The crushed blossoms

The fallen twigs

The fresh blooming flowers

The shimmering dew

All go hand in hand.

O' Gardner, the garden bore a cumbersome heart,

But it never far cries over the deceased part,

Their significance as a sign made him mend and mind,

His heavy heart, forming droplets, drenched his hand,

All that is happening is a part of a higher design.

He simply let bygones be bygones.

      Thanks nillieanna, it's wonderful to see your comments too, after long time. Thanks for visit and encouraging words. Yes, It is amazing how sometimes everything fits in place. Only an intent can trigger and everything just fits itself automatically. I thank you on behalf on surabhi as well.

      Hello, Surahbi and Hari! I love the collaborating. Your theme and examples ring true.

      How wonderful that all things work together so naturally.

      Bygones ARE bye-gone! What remains is simply to accept it! Hugs.

      Very interesting poem, my friend. Nice.

      O Lakshmi, I dream your dream;

      Sit silently in your Heart,

      As You in mines.

      Our fountain of Love, ever remains eternal.

      What rain can dowse our flames?

      Who dare speak of parting?

      I long for you, and again,

      I touch you without motion.

      I am in your dream as my eyes open,

      Yet see nothing else.

      O Lover, I am your eternal bird;

      You are my speechless Love unspoken.

      Never forget this undying Truth." _ Manatita.

      Eric i too love gardening and natural farming too says everything is benifitial and keeping weeds is benifitial to the plants of interest. Life too in a way is same. Everything that happens in it has a purpose. Thanks for visit.

      Delightful. It made me think of the technique of letting some types of weeds grow beneath my roses. They seemingly do not belong but they keep the aphids off my roses. I just love the gardens of life. Thank you for such a wonderful tribute to them.
