Poem By Bhaswat Chakraborty

I see
I hear
I intend
I extend

I see the seeing
I see the hearing
I see the intension
I see the extension

Life after life
I have lived
Without seeing I live
Deaths after death
I have died
Without seeing me dead

So have I traveled thus far
Without seeing the Path
So have I known the things thus far
Without knowing the Knowingness

Now if I see the Path
And know the Knowingness
Beyond the dying of death
And living of birth
Now if I see the Dance
With joy and compassion
With a heart of a friend

I also see this is because of my Guru.

...having not perished...I thank my Guru 10+
great work. keep it up.
Very well written you did great.. laurel
Your poems are so deep but I think I get this, is it a reference to reincarnation and the fact that people don't generally remember their previous lives and your karma is increased each time you lead a good life? I like it.
nice message of the 'the truth'- the reality that 'man' is really looking yet not seeing, however the blindness does not mean 'death' or egnorance it is al about 'the journey towards knowing' through experiencing life and how to live it... i like it...keep the legacy of poetry.

The Naked Child

The war stopped, the great one
About seventy years ago
All said and done
There is now peace – peace aglow



I am a little petal of hue and smell
I am gorgeous you can tell


Of all human manifestations
May I say, you are the greatest
As you give milk, food and protection
What to say of love, peace and rest!

Your Song

I remember all about you
When I sing the song you wrote
The eyes get wet as they knew
The lifelong generosity you dote

A Friend From Far

Oh, ho! Oh ho, here you are
My friend, my friend from far
Am I glad to see you here
Oh my friend, oh dear, dear!

Oh Load-Bearers Of Humanity

When I gasp for strength
I borrow it from you, oh the strong ones!
You carry the load stupendous
Of the humanity
