A Star

Poem By Neela Nath Das

When I cast my look
at the deep blue
in the morning
or at night either,
I sense a star
like Pole Star
is watching me.
Is it the Eyes
of Lord Vishnu,
or anyone else?
My conscience
wakes me up
to find out
the truth.
No answer
has come yet
of my question
from the Earth
or from the water
fire, wind or
the blue firmament!
Not even any clue.

Comments about A Star

I read this poem. It is beautiful. Beauty is in 'no answer', so you can write this poem. One thing friend, you awake and get 'no'. And one day i will go to sleep, having a 'no'. It is usual.
It is Sirius, the Dog Star- the brightest as it is more closer to the Earth! (I know you are metaphorically referring to something else) Enjoyed!

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.
