Tempered becomes the soul,

whilst it gets heated and burnt like a coal,

in the furnace of life,

with times  of pain and  sorrows ,



Enduring becomes the entity,

which gets submerged in the glory  of Thee,

forgetting the rest around,

It surrenders itself in  HIS lotus feet.


Tears of sorrow,or tears of joy,

are only for the divine tie,

where yearning of the soul is for …

to be a part of HIS  celestial being…


A ray of happiness and bliss shines

glowing the heart radiantly suffice,

as it gets embraced by

the Eternal Master of the Divine Oceanic Stream.


Nothing affects the noble soul,

pain or pleasure,

wealth or glamour poured,

sinking in the love of God,

becomes its  ecstatic moment…

 to enthrall…

    Beautiful lines, Soumya. This feels like a continuation to another of your Soul verses you wrote few days back. Just when i was reading the last stanza I realized it flows with one i’ve read before so i went back to your archives to find that post .. Somehow this one follows “A Soul”.. Loved it.. 🙂

    • soumyav January 21, 2013 / 10:57 am

      Yes Muzer! and Iam glad you could find the connection..sometimes there is a flow about a subject or topic that tends to take us deep within ,,excavating and uncovering more things from it. such was this one. and it continues to be my fav..so any more to come when i feel that

      • muZer January 21, 2013 / 10:59 am

        It happens to be my fav too.. Always love reading about soul and the eternal guide. Something spiritual and calming about those words that hit me.. 🙂
        Love your new background.. Works wonderfully well with your poetry.. 🙂

        • soumyav January 21, 2013 / 11:04 am

    The last para is intact 🙂

    But, tempered becomes the soul?? 😦

    • soumyav January 21, 2013 / 3:43 pm

      Here “tempered ” doesn’t mean good or bad tempered..it is a technique used in heat treatment of steel,where the steel is tempered to a certain state that nothing affects it,it is attuned cor adjusted such by heating ,it becomes resilient after being treated at a certainctemperature. such is the soul which becomes tempered after being through several pains and sorrows of life.
