Memories

a poem by

Jyothi K

Some childhood memories I cherish,
So much that,
I wouldn’t want to remember them,
For,
They always reveal the eternal truth,
That,
I was happy once upon a time.

My salutations to a flower

a poem by

Jyothi K

Wonder flower thou art,
Named Jasmine by Humans,
Blooming in darkness, becoming Sun’s envy
Yet, spreading your fragrance in daylight
Women are fond of you more than their husbands,
You touch the feet of omnipotent God,
Where humans cannot;
You are given the warmest reception in all auspicious events,
If I were Keats, I would have sung,
A Jasmine, is a Jasmine, is a Jasmine, by whatever name you call;
If I were one amongst you, what bliss it could have been.

The Lost Paradise

a poem by

Jyothi K

When shall we regain the lost paradise?
Where, peace shall be restored.
Earth reduced to, worse than a butcher house,
Craves for mercy from the humans,
Who, sell their souls to buy power
Virtue has come down to the streets,
Giving way for sins to enter the shrine
Man continue his worship, knowing not that,
God, has left the sanctum
Humanity, which has given abode to many
Has no place here, to rest its tiring shoulders
Love has transformed into lust,
Losing its own identity.
Nature outbursts as a volcano spitting
The Molten fiery.
When shall we regain the lost paradise?
Where peace shall be restored
