A Little Beat

Poem By Raj Arumugam

the day’s work is done
the sun sinks in the east
and we have showered and eaten
and the machine slows down;
still, there’s a little beat in there

Comments about A Little Beat

As long as theres a little beat, theres a fire and if theres fire, there's life my friend. Short, sweet and beautiful, thank you for sharing. :)
While even stillness is aflutter with voices from outer mind, the chant of that rhythm beating out the world to come alive divine-inspiration of lovely tunes as source of crude noises-though at hide-&-seek play with all, guides their friendly hosts unheard

to a fleeting moment:
glimpses of the room
the window at which the darkness hangs

Let There Be Peace

let there be peace in each heart
a peace that is independent of place and circumstance;
a quiet that is not reliant on ideas or dogma
or religion or club or leaning on another;
