Sunshine:The Beacon of Genesis
Days and Nights the hard, harsh lances of the Sun
And the sombre folds of shadowed recesses embrace
Each other alternately, mingle unconditionally relentless.
In the background, the pangs of poignant pains unseen,
Kindle themselves and evaporate naturally, but in
Secret, noiseless and enraptured persistance.
Life still throbs, its longing for the incense laden
Fragrant evening lasts through.
With the dusky end of the day settling in,
Meteorites light up the blighted souls in flashes.
From another world anon, waves of sweet dirges
Roll in, roll on and inundate dark, familiar shores.
We perceive a faraway loner, a wood-nymph in bridal gown
Lamenting, wailing her tears pouring in rivulets,
Swelling the monsoon rainfed rivers. Scented fumes,
Nevertheless, keep billowing through her rich, lush
And silken falls of hair!
On my tireless sojourn along the lotus-scented trail
Alit and shady concurrently, I globe-trot, pushing
My Burden, souls-searching. The milky way Hope
Drags me on, I am rooted to the trodden earth though!
The two hearts seek each other. in the eternal arena of
Light and Shade, shaking in unquenched thirst. Oh!
The veils of darkness fall serially, each a shade darker
And denser than before, offering a wreath of
Separated, slighted Love keeps smouldering, all the same,
Heralding the purest joy of belonging divine, incense smothered!
Amidst the dark-green flora, fire-flies glow,
Fluttering their wings febrile,illuminating the wild trails,
Tracing luminous walks wonderful!
Incenses ethereal envelope and engulf the spirit of Love
Unawares. In the void, in cosmos, Phoebus on his golden chariot
Is resurrected as usual, spraying Life with welcome caresses alit!
Lo! Light and shade unlock the El Dorado of the Domain of Love
Where sunshine ushers in the Genesis of Life.
