Theme: Love


When the primordial sound
resonates unidirectionally
then ascends
that precious moment
       encapsulating all my reticence
is -
what I call - Silence
It is in this moment
of absolute freedom
when from deep within
a little bud unfolds
with myriad fragrances
and blooming desires

Night awakens
sleep discards all coverings
and I cannot help
but embrace my beloved
to encase the petals
in the bouquet of love
and baptize the moment
as Nirvana

Comment Your poem, Rajender ji, has a touch great philosophy. Silence is louder than any voice and pervades everywhere. Raman Maharshi was the saint of silence.

Comment Thanks all for reviewing, appreciating and commenting. Note for Mr. Rajat Das Gupta - Bringing in Tagore in relation to my poem is belittling the Gurudev. I think the Gurudev needs to be read and understood on a much higher pedestal.

Comment 13 October 2012
TO: Mr. Rajender Krishan
Indeed a beautiful poem! But, as I cannot express myself in my own language, except in Tagore's particularly in case of a poem of such an excellence, I beg to be excused to draw analogy from the following Rabindrasangeet whose nuance I sense in your poem -

[Note: This song has a place in the Prem (=Love) series. Tthe readers/audience
may see it in the mundane or even Plutonic sense of ‘love’ or to feel its
succession to the perception of the Creator’s care for us all through our
life with its weal and woe or ups and downs. Such ‘borderless’ character
of the Rabindrasangeets leaves scope for such open interpretation.]

My heart will recluse
In your silence profuse
As of the profound full-moon night
With its solitude’s calm light;
All my life and youth
My whole world you’ll soothe,
With your glory you’ll fill
Like the night’s still.
Alone will wake your eye
Your compassion on me to lie,
Shade of your robe to cover
My lone for ever.
All my pain and blight,
My euphoria and delight
With fragrance you’ll fill
Like the night sentinel still.

Comment sir,
'silence' would have been the answer. But I had to broke this to say 'awesome'.

Comment I like the flowing vision.The connoisseur perceives depths of emotion portrayed and seeps right into 'silence' unperturbed even of the shrill chirping sound of the cricket.

Comment It is so beautiful and simple.
One "feels" the experience of NIRVANA.
But NIRVANA is blooming of not one bud; but the whole universe.
Your poems and feelings in them; are contributing to such NIRVANA.

Comment Everyday, Rajenderji is giving us diamond piece of wisdom in the poetic form. The picturisation of abstract is so appealing. The Nirvana image is grand.

Comment love begins, lingers to end in eternity
but freedom gives rise to desires, uncontrolled desires
to embrace whole heartily God, God the omnipotent.

Comment Mystical silence---de-coded for the less mystical. Flows like a silent river in a deep valley.
