Or things which are useful.

Or turn useless,

The love evaporates.”

 LOVE comments of human love and Gods love for his creation

When we lose beauty, or utility, our worldly partners discard us. Animals whom we love when they give milk are sold out to slaughter houses. But God is a different kind. When we lose all powers of perception and become utterly useless, he silently calls us to his enclosure under the earth


We love things which look beautiful

Or things which are useful.

And when things lose beauty

Or turn useless,

The love evaporates.


But men and women

When fall in love,

These benchmarks of

Beauty and utility

Turn irrelevant.


Love like hope springs eternal

In human heart

And stays

Even when cheeks lose glow

And winds lose their blow.


Offspring is loved by the living species

But when parents grow old,

Or if some accident

Breaks a child beyond repair,

How long can love be stretched?


Animals are loved only so long

As they give milk.

Or they have enough strength

In their knees to pull the carts,

Before being sold out to the slaughter house


Love of this land has its limitations

Even men and women who love

Sometimes find it a burden

And rush to the courts.

Who carries a relation reduced to a carcass?


Earth is a different type of mother

And God a doting father

Who call to their embrace

Voyagers whose boats were broken

Before they could cry “Eureka”.


SMILE is a poem which philosophizes how a man should conduct himself in the cosmic society if he wants God’s love and reach his Golden Tent.


I received an invitation

From God.

I wondered what gift I should carry.


The greatest gift for

The living father

Was his son’s smiling face


I bought some smiles

From a flower shop

And thought it would do


I was surprised

It did not impress God

And he turned me back


On my return journey

He changed the entire environment

And thought now the smile would be original.


On the earth,

I visited some other shops

But every time I was turned back.


At last God made me sit by him.

Simple, He said

Can you make my beings happy?


I poured some water

Into the drying roots of a few plants

And placed a small jar of water for pigeons


I took some sugar and poured it

On an ant hill,

They were so happy.


When cuckoo sang,

And when I saw squirrels

God saw a smile on my face


And lovingly he called me

To His golden tent

To stay there forever.
