A Morning Opens Up

Poem By Neela Nath Das

Sleep comes to rest our body
But soul roams as it wishes.
It travels the world alone
When legs deny to move.
Our limbs drown in the river of slumber
To awake again after the dark.
Morning opens up the another day
And unites the body and soul.
New hope shines in the horizon
And says goodbye to despair.

A River Of The Will

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

Walk With Me A While

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
falling snow.


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.
