Belated elegy and eulogy for sir Abdul Kalam

Professor Abdul Kalam the luminous brilliant star I pay homage to you from here in Dar Great brill scientist in the field of Aerospace A noble man with an intellectual mien and grace Aeronautics and more were his speciality wow! He's referred to as India's best known nucleur Scientist. An inventive mind has passed away now Lets celebrate and commemorate a great catalyst He did India proud and did a lot for her All Indians who know him will concur Elected as her great President as well Sad now to bid him adieus and farewell Yay, the Indian soil has now a brilliant hero in her bosom indeed I adoringly salute this great man of my race and my creed. When a scientist dies it is a great loss for us all May God raise more like him after his inevitable fall But he can now repose in heaven's lap On earth though he has left a mighty gap. God I believe, loves those who utilise His gift of brains Meditation releases us from earthly fetters and chains Science and learning works your mind ; the brain needs exercise too So I thank God for scientists , for scientific minds That help to illuminate and enlighten this world, for me and you.

This is just brilliant. I, of course, did not know of the man you lost, but India obviously treasured him. Your rhymes are so unusual and original. Thank you for commenting on my poem, too.

My warm thanx for your review. Yeah you are right my poetry is truly unconventional and at times criticised by professionals but I'm spurred on and encouraged by the likes of good English poets who actually tell me that quote 'my poetry is interesting and unique despite being an unconventional blend of forms." Well it happens because I bid my rhyme n rhythm to follow and obey my message rather than vice versa like professional conventional poets do. I have to say what I want I say clearly and that messes up the rhyme scheme. Besides English is not my mother tongue so as a second language I hope poets bear with me and yes I do get acknowledgement on all sites.

A beautiful eulogy you have written here for Sir Abdul Kalam. But they leave behind their great work for the benefit of mankind. Regards Tom

wonderful Tribute ... I remember picturs of his wonderful, flowing, white hair. Yes, all Indians were so proud of their Scientist-President. Balanced & inspiring post --- so right about ways to thank God for our minds, dedicated to helping humanity (His highest Creation). salaam

Warm thanx dear sis, he was a Muslim scientist I admired for his brains since I was a teenager. A humble soul and that's the quality that belongs to true great men.
