Theme: Perception


No matter what
needs to be done
warrants performance
with humility, attention
and caring commitment
akin to the devotion
of Nandi the bull
sitting outside
the Shiva temple
with intense forbearance

Nandi sybolises the eternal character of devotion. Befitting analogy for interrelation of things around us.

Comment Shiva Shakti - Poem by T A Ramesh

Fight between male and female over domination is a long play
Starting from the fight between Shiva and Shakti time onwards!
Shiva is just a stone and not a God at all many argue long
Not knowing that Shiva is a volcanic mountain clad in snow!

Shakti is energy set free only when the volcano erupts with
Lava fire bursting out in great rage living ever in the fire
Like the magma bubbling inside the bowel of Earth forever
Known only when eruption takes place now and then we know!

This is natural phenomenon all cannot refute anywhere in world;
Respecting this natural order, the fight between man and woman
Should come to an end with mutual respect each one's nature
And fulfil their destiny in fostering the family culture well ever!

thout the one, the other cannot exist and vice versa forever
And maintain beauty, duty and bounty of Nature for good ever!
