Raindrops

silver strings play through lightning
in a tuneful duo with rolling thunder sound
the raindrops bounce and  jiggle
pounding and bouncing
in a rocking band
petrichor ascends
from a thirsty ground
saturates
like music
penetrates into my soul
each sound of nature
breath, listen, live and love it
a sheer joy and morsel of life which nurture

Sweet Taste of Love

   "Sweet Taste of Love"



sweet taste
of true love
is divine essence
sprinkled from heavenly skyline by Angels.

thin line
severs love
hate resonates heart 
dagger thrusts ---

love conquers life if hearts remain faithfully
as the golden arch shatters dreams caged in death.

The Classical Argument for LOVE

let me make an argument for love you can’t refute
I want to win you
I want you to be convinced
I’m the best thing that there is
give heed to this, my argument of logos
for in that you will find peace
it makes sense
logical
I can satisfy your needs
a good arrangement
I know the empty spaces
of your heart
I will make you whole
completion is within reach
I am here

and what of ethos?
am I credible?
are you scared to trust in me?
afraid you will break
like before
By others who were untrue
stop keeping the score
I am not of the same hue
my color is faithfulness
I will never let you fall
ask anyone to testify of my honesty
ask now
believe
I am the real deal
rest in this my bed of honest devotion
trust me
in my eyes truth lives
I am credible
let my actions of the past now speak to you
dispelling your doubt
I am genuine
never fear

what can compare to pathos?
my all-encompassing love?
the oceans are impotent
the “mighty” waves weak
so unlike the mighty swells of my passion
that pound
that withdraw
only to come crashing down
stronger
Leaving you gasping for breath
pulling you under
again and again
tugging and churning
helpless in my liquid arms

the moon hides
unable to compete with my love for you
shamed by the brilliance
of my devotion
she gathers the stars
my love can illuminate
your way in the darkest night 

even the sun is no match
to the fiery heat my passion ignites
wilder than an inferno
hot flares
Oh….so....H O T
it blazes with licking tongues of desire
able to melt your restraint
consuming
let it set you on fire
let it sear your heart
let me smell the scent of your burning body 
in my unquenchable flame

I implore you to consider my great love
it is life
it goes beyond life
it is deep
it goes beyond depth
it goes beyond star embroidered veil of night
it goes beyond the horizon of today
tomorrow
and eternity

consider my love
the logos
ethos
and above it all, pathos
let them be my voice
open wide your heart to me
…today
don’t wait
surrender to me
s u r r e n d e r
to...M E

Hymns of Salvation 1

Hymns of salvation

That  my own  body 
is my greatest enemy
was unknown to me.
Deluded,  
O Lord, I  was reveling  in its pleasures.

The ones that
do not listen to Your tales,
never  speak the truth and won’t feed the starving,
worry  not about what is right and what’s not,
would  not obey the Guru,
do not remember  Your name; 
O God, why should anyone care if such folks
are  alive or dead.

O God,  fed up we all are
kinsfolk  with weeping ,
relatives  with cremating ,
moms  with giving birth  ,
I  with getting born.

Form: “Suzette Prime” with the syllable count, per line, of  2, 3, 5, 7, 11, 13 etc , all Prime numbers.
For: Su Crous’ Prime numbers and Philosophy contest.

By: S.Jagathsimhan Nair.

* The philosophy of the poem is  borrowed  from the  hymns ( in Tamil) sung by one of our( Indian) saints named” PATTINATHAR”, revered for his words of wisdom and deeds of miracles. The reference in the 3rd stanza is to the innumerable incarnations each soul has to go through, age after age, till it gets freed from the cycle of births and deaths on attainment of salvation. Here he is praying to God for his own salvation : ” In this never ending cycle of births  and deaths ;  times without number, have my close relations wept for me whenever I died, my near ones cremated me as many times; times without number, mothers gave birth to me and times without number I was born into this world. We are all totally fed up, going through  this process repeating itself  again and again. O God, deliver me once and for all from this terrible fate”.
Stanzas 1 and 2 are self-explanatory.

All Confused

Time is flying by 
and nothing changes
Everything is just the same
As if it all happened yesterday

Everyday I wake up and I say
“Today is a new day, 
And I shall live without you…
That is the new beginning of the end”
But as morning time goes by,
With every breath I take
Deep inside me, there is even minor hope
That I can never replace
And that is the hope
Of getting back in between your arms
Because that is my home place..

Million tears I cried,
Most of which have dried ..
Thousand ways I tried,
Which all evolves what I internally hide
But I believe
Without even a try,
Everything was so clear and bright

I am tires of the thought of you
But I cannot live without them though
I am so confused..
You stepped back and left me in the middle of the road
You turned your back and threw it all behind
Leaving time to fold it all..

Yet till the moment, I am suffering
Till the moment, I am drowning
Till the moment, I am hanging on 
But to what’!
Maybe to the one who I one day thought he was..

It is hard to replace a true feeling,
And heart beatings with someone’s name
With just couple of friends,
Or temporary moments and laughs
That you simply with them share..

But what about you..
The only non temporary thing in my life
The only constant inside..
But still…
How could you occupy such place
When you did not work hard for it?
How could you be there
When you are way far?
I do not understand
Is it me who doesn’t welcome
The idea of letting go
Or is it you my true soul mate
Who I should hand on to?
I do not know
I am just so confused
And I do really hate the idea
Of extremely missing you!

the smell of the sea

the smell 
of the sea 
is overpowered by the
watermelon fragrance of newly mowed lawn

wagtails
hunting for unseen tit-bits 
among shrubs –
an earthworm becomes a bone of contention

a butcherbird swoops – 
swallowing the spoil

if only the wagtails had agreed to share...
there’s enough for all of us to go around

moments to reflect

										12/10/2012
 											12/10/2012
As I look up into the night sky, oh what a beautiful sight the stars shining so bright. I think about my Lord and my heart swells and fills with so much joy that the Father of all created such wonders in the heavens above.
This cause me to reflect upon my existence on this earth, why was I given birth, what is my purpose on this earth? These questions laid profoundly on my mind and brought tear to my eyes.
I got down on my knees and ask my Lord please explain it to me. From my heart came pouring out all of my thoughts along with all of my doubts.
To my lord I did say, what is it that you want from me for I do the things that I do not want to do, and the things that I want to do, I cannot seem to do, why am I such a fool?
What is wrong seems so right and doing what is right is so hard for me to do, am hurting so deep within all I want is this pain to end.
My life is filled with so many ups and down I cannot keep my feet on solid ground. I feel like am on a rollercoaster and it headed straight to hell.
Then as the tears began to fall and my heart started to break all of a sudden I felt this warm embraces I have never in life expedited such love, such comfort and suddenly all my pain was gone and I heard the angels singing a wonderful song and in my mind eye I could see my Lord and savior sitting on His throne.
He smile and said to me , life is worth livening this is why it was given trails and tribulation are just part of the deal and I know that this is a bitter pill .
It in your nature to sin my child but this you can end if you walk in the light and let me come in.
My yoke is easy and I make your burdens light so just ask me to forgive you of your sins for with me in your comer this fight you will win then you will be heaven bound... The guide if you decide to be at my side is written in my living words.
Read them and heed them and satan will frown and you will no longer be hell bound.
Then the Lord said to me , I tell you this my little lamb,  I Am, I Am and I came into this world a long time ago. My Father sent me to earth to show His child the way. I became a living sacrifice and paid a debt that was not mine. So that you might find your way home and be by my side. Rejoice; rejoice all is not lost,
If you think that the star in the heavens are a wonderful sight; you now see what {I see when I created thee. My love has no boundaries it all for the asking if you put your faith in me. Trust me with all of your heart and in this you will find the ultimate peace of mind. Bless you my little lamb your time was well spent praying to upon your knees. The seed has been planted and I will harvest the crops and separate the wheat from the weeds and cast them they into the lake of fire where them will suffer for all eternity

Make Way for the Dolphins and Whales -

today
we don't think
therefore we are not
descartes is dead and gone
machines and computers work and think for us
our minds are shrinking, withering and decaying from lack of exercise

...A rather feeble attempt at Su's poetry form...
Okay Su, lay it on me! I'm tough...I can take it! (but I may retire to my bedroom to whimper and whine if you don't like it)

speak out
silence hangs

*if you are not part 
of the solution, you're part of the problem

act with mercy and kindness but, do act non-the-less
you were born with mind and spine, so soldier on doing what needs be done

Divine Love

situations change
we are driven to despair
when we forget His infinite love for us

His divine plan is not for us to divine
our destiny is ordained

great is His Grace

CYCLE OF LIFE

collecting ripe seeds –
season’s floral abundance – 
sowing them in prepared trays 
brings fresh hope of renewal

the praying mantis sups on a small cutworm
young shoots on the confetti bushes are stripped bare
the white butterfly
has hopefully laid its black eggs on the branch 
but it will not now complete its life cycle

aspirations are cut short –  
life continues to turn on its own axis 
with or without our input


events 
change us 
irrespective of our thoughts on the matter 
or our resistance 
we may live in denial, but to no avail 
resisting the changes only frustrates us


jealously 
we cling to the known 
sometimes unwelcome present state, struggling to survive against all odds 
mourning loss of youth and vim 
eventually 
we all succumb to death of the mortal flesh

as the butterfly 
had met with its fate 
in an altered state
so we 
inexorably
meet our own fate in our present altered state 
not many will make it to the afterlife 
acceptance frees us

knowledge is the recognition of the transient nature of our present state 
that events unfold without our influence
we are the seeds for the next generation – 
planting hope for a better, brighter future

You and I

Mirror 
Of my heart,
desert of colours`
voluntary prisoner;
 angel walking along the crystalline bridge
counting the fluorescent steps of Fancy`s Fairy…

 If I think, I really am... driven away from Plato`s fortress
 holding that surreptitious perfume of the unforgettable horizons…

 If the hell means the others… honestly, I agree we would like to be our own paradise

The Fish Eagle

master of the river calling to his mate 
I lift my face to the early morning sun 
just in time to see him swoop 
extending  talons 
scooping  fish  
bearing it aloft 
he settles 
on an overhanging branch 
and savours his catch of the morning – ripping 
then we are all one – the fish eagles and I

Grampy's Stories

beautiful tales of the past
woven lovingly
the beautiful lies
bright fiction spun on imagination's loom
a knee
which I gladly rode from fantasy to doom
beautiful pale blue
behind cloudy eyes I'd find
tales with which to carry on the golden thread that binds
"There are no rules of architecture for a castle in the clouds"*

*The quote from William Chesterton

Freedom

the caged lion sniffs the air
barrier lifted 
freedom is a step away 
an unknown concept 

we rush out headlong 
embracing perceived freedom 
yet hopelessly lost 
in an idealized pursuit 

This poem is also known as "Caged", to distinguish it from another poem by me, named "Freedom".

WHERE THE MOMENT LIES

the point where the sea meets sky is where the moment lies never quite clearly observed or grasped taking a step back into our past will bring the moment closer but as we move forward the future remains out of our reach ever shifting in perceived expectations the moment lies at the edge where the sea meets the sky

My Legacy

you cannot calculate my legacy in monetary value 
or in market shares 
neither in some property 
nor anything tangible 
 
I leave you my soul 
recorded in poetry 
and thoughts 
I share 
with those of you with an ear for the essence of me 

 “God did not give us things to enjoy our life 
He gave us life so that we may enjoy things” * 
 
 
*Quote from my book, Water Dance

This is the title poem of my new volume of poetry, My Legacy,
inspired by my new surroundings in the Great Karoo, SA
This is my final volume of poetry published in English. 
I am now concentrating on writing in Afrkaans (my native tongue).

MUKUROB

circling 
Mukurob -
its aspect now changed

only by our own actions
can we change our perspective and bring about a change

the shadows 
will inexorably shift 
and the warmth radiated is comforting 
moving out of the shadows 
ease things into focus by the new light shed on it

it does not matter how long we look at something or examine it, 
it won’t change 
WE need to circle 
in order to improve the aspect of a given situation  
moving out of our comfort zone to succeed
circling 
the rock

Life in a Dream corrected

Moments to Reflect
Life found in a Dream 
Today I’m a lonely man living in a cold, cold world filled with indifferences and malice. As time marches on a harsh reality come to my mind, time is on no one’s sided, it is only given once and all must die and tomorrow is not guaranteed. This seems so mean because having no one to really love or so it seemed, I was just a lone no one was on my team.
I started to think and reminisce about the think in life that I missed. Tears appeared in my eyes and my heart skips a beat so I lay down and felled into a deep, deep sleep. Suddenly and to my surprise I was on a beach with soft sand underneath feet. The sky was so blue and the air smelled oh so sweet; it dawned on me that this was a place few have ever seen.
I walk down to the water and what did I see; the sea was strange so let me explain; it was made of crystal with a glow all of its own and the waves gave off a musical tone. As my mind adjusted to sounds and the sight I spied out another wonderful delight. There across the sea, a city brighter than the northern lights, oh what a beautiful sight.
I fell down to my knees overwhelmed by the glory that was before me. I thought that I had died and stepped to the other side. I knew what I was seeing before just could not be true, such beauty, it could not exist, not in my world, never like this. A melody that I have never heard before arose from the City across that crystal sea. It had to be played by Angels, the music was so, so sweet; that I felt a joy from my head to my feet and knew deep in my heart that was where I belong,
Just when I decided to dive in and swim to the other side, I heard a soft voice call out my name. I turned around to see who it was that called out my name. There He was this gentle looking Man with sadness in His eyes. He spoke to me and this is what He said; my son, my son you cannot dive in and swim to the other side. So I ask Him why I can’t swim to the other side, that’s easy for me, am going to try.  No, no, no it not for you it not your time was His only reply. I did not understand His reason but I felt His command and suddenly my feet was stuck in the sand, I cried out with hurt and pain in my voice; what lies on the other side, who are you and why can I not go on the other side?
This is the story that He told:
The city that you see beyond the crystal sea it belongs to me and it has streets that are paved in gold. There are many mansions lining the roads and in each one there are treasures that are a wonders to behold. There is no hunger, sickness or death, life everlasting and there you will find rest and for all eternity you will be My guest.  Now I will answer your second question, my son, my son; I Am, who I Am! I came to earth a long time ago and I prepared The Way for all my children to come home. This is some that you should know, for it was written for all to read a long time ago. I am always with you in your times of needs you are never ever all alone. Last but not the least you ask me why; my son, my son it’s just not your time. 
Seek and you will find, knock and the door will be open, and until you love Me, it will never be. Now go back and remember what you seen and what you have heard, because time grows short. Spread My words that My kingdom draws near, repent, repent and stop causing Me tears.
I suddenly opened my eyes and I was home in my bed and I start to cry. Never have I felt such joy and peace deep within. I went down on my knees and I ask the Lord Jesus to please come in and would you please forgive me of all of my sins, please come and live inside of me until the end. I now sow the seeds and when the harvest comes the Lord will know if they landed on fertile ground. Keep this in mind cause when it is time He will separate wheat from the weeds and set all of His children free.
(Warning, Warning)
The time is now, and do it before it to late! 
Time is on no one side.
Everyone want to go to heaven but no one want to die.
You do not have to worry if you have Jesus inside.
He there for the asking want you try
Do you want Him? He want you, it about free will and you must choose.
The Gift is free, Heaven are hell which will it be?
I hope that I have sowed a seed and it will grow, but it will only grow if you truly believe and have faith deep within your heart and soul.
Time waits for no one!
Faith is something sight unseen will you not set your spirit free? Is it so hard for you to believe that Jesus is the answer and all you need? The door is open want you please come in? Don’t you think it time to find that Kingdom that is way up high filled with riches up in the sky?
