THE SILKEN CLOTH!


DSC00097

For what you cry and what you wail!

the silken skin now scrapes,

excoriations wound you more

as the grime clings ,giving pain. 

Adhered to the cloth,

cleaning the dirt stricken spot

waste goes the life hence

 in rinsing the smudge off.

 

muck stains the bosom

what use is the clean linen

if soiled core is underneath…

What use the fabric satin!

 

washed with tears for ages

although wont clear the blot

A touch of pure divine essence

Only will distill the heart…

coloured with sprinkle of eternal hues,

a pristine perfumed  form appears

shredding the falsified distortions,

emerging with a conscience transparent and clear.

Love thy soul,thy spirit of endeavour,

forget the glossy cover,

dwells where the Universal creator,

in the realm of the heart ,  forever.

        Yes It can change in split second but Understanding this universal truth world will take several decades or may be centuries and that is heartening.

    Soumya I just loved it….every word is so beautiful! I have no words to express the beauty of your poem. I am so much happy and delighted.
    “A touch of pure divine essence
    Only will distill the heart…”

    “forget the glossy cover,
    dwells where the Universal creator,
    in the realm of the heart , forever.”
    Its too deep I wish everyone in this world understand the true meaning of life.

    Lots of luv and hugs for writing this wonderful piece

    • soumyav June 26, 2013 / 2:36 pm

    In a world where glossy cover means a lot – where silken cloth does matter; we are in the clutches of universal materialism!
    We are trying to rinse the grime of pain which is the result of breaking the relationship from demands of the soul. And this nice poem is about —

    A touch of pure divine essence
    Only will distill the heart…

    and gives peace!
    Nice poem!

    • soumyav June 26, 2013 / 3:33 pm

      Absolute truth Rafi , the conflict of our inner self to remain attached to the Divine and strong luring of the outer world has diminished the senses of ours.
      For a small spot of dirt or an unseen behaviour which we find intolerant,humans now jump into the useless struggle of cleaning those things from life and society,rather than polishing the inner surface to reflect the real divine from within.
      If every individual worked on himself,the scenario would surely change of the world,but all this can be done with that pure touch of Divine and nothing else.
      Thanks for reading and getting connected .

    Soumya, this is really beautiful.
    When I was going through it certain images flickered in my mind and I couldn’t really place them. This has done wonders. Thanks a lot.
