A Body In Empty Shell

Poem By Neela Nath Das

I want to keep my head down,
To utter my prayer for us.
Let, fill us with pure light,
Let us be as sober as grass.
The open air, the crystal mind,
The leaves of grass, the dew
From the heaven, the azure sky,
All we need, to worship you!
What's the use of this life,
If innocence does fail?
Will wehave fun and frolic,
With a body in empty shell?
We have come to leave footprints,
On the way we always walk.
So that people may follow us,
Our works and walk on our given track!

...our footprints are ways for others to trace back our sins and virtues.....great wrk dear, this poem was a nice one to read

Nice one, dear Nilakshi Das, a form of spirituality and the need for awareness of the left-behind traces or footprints.
spiritual and demanding.....the way is shown in no uncertain terms....the path to eternity, the path to nirvana.... prophetic and well written liked it cheers
What's the use of this life, If innocence does fail? Will we have fun and frolic, With a body with empty shell? ........... Beautiful verse :)

A river of the will,
Plays in my mind.
I call her to come out,
But she stays behind.

Walk with me for a while,
Throw your glum, and please, smile-
Our heaven is not very near.....
See there a grove of pine,

Stupid I

My stupid I,
do not know,
the sight of the

Mother

Her eyes are blank,
Clothes torn, ragged & patched
Beauty has taken renunciation long past;
She has no rank,

100s Of Years

Trees can live for hundreds of years,
They well know to live together!
They tuft to earth, as child's to mom,
Light, water, and air they do share!

My Dream, My Pet

It lies and sleeps with me
and wakes me up, in the morning.
It sweeps my gloomy sky and
mops the soot of mind's every corner.
