(2nd July,1986 / Bahraich, India)

Life

Tears are hidden behind smile,

Among the thorns a laughing rose,

Or holy dew that exists for a while,

Like struggling stars our hopes in pathos,

But the thing that increases my pleasure,

The uncertainty and unknown treasure.

wow. this is absolutely my favourite out of all you poems. it is both powerful and beautiful. it is an ecellent analogy of contemporary society and the life which we have carved for ourselves out of this world.'the uncertainty and unknown pleasure' you and I have a lot in common. an ecellent choice of words.
Such a small poem and such vivid imagery. Very well written, I love it's simplicity and the beauty it holds but beware, sometimes beauty bites. Brava
Wow! great work indeed. last two lines the best, gave me hope to keep going. thanks a lot for sharing, love your work.
Life is sweeter as well as bitter but one should not miss the beauty of life fearing at thorns. Good poem :)
