A Thirsty Fish

Poem By Prabhakar Srivastava

In bottom of a dried well
Lying like a writhing fish
Longing for water's smell
But Thou denied my wish

I might die in that plight
But I know, not very far
Murmurs a river all the night
Its sound too reaches me
O Almighty! give me might
To be out, to see me free

Lo! I see vital drops like dew
So I just wanted to thank you
But got the most terrible shock
At a spitting king cobra's view

To My Goal

Yes, I too feel pain
Piercing thousands draggers
Millions cinders rain
It's more than that of beggars

Move On O Soul!

They say thou exist in palm's lines
And make one's life pettier than hay
It's thy grace that someone shines
While one other longs for a single ray

O Ruthless Life!

Show a little mercy O ruthless life!
For every creature is thy true lover
Let them sometimes win the strife
Let some cool gusts flow in summer

O Women! For You.....

just dedicating the few lines O Women! for you
In God's divine creation, You are but among few
So kind, So patient, ever soothing like moon's ray
So indebted we are, Alas! no way is there to repay

What Is Love

What is love? I think I know
Let me strive to make you realize
Where it breeds and when it flies
To seek it where should you go?

Love Is They Say...

Love is they say a feeling of heart
Love is they say God's eternal art
Love is they say purer than purest
Love is they say better than best
