Sonnet: The Eye

Poem By Dr. A.Celestine Raj Manohar M.D.,

The Eye- ‘window of the animal brain’-
A gift of God that helps appreciate life,
Discerning Nature’s beauty in the main;
Blindness is man’s most intolerable strife!

Man’s living camera that guides him see
With vision binocular, things near and far;
Images fall on screen retinally;
Man sees in darkness too, the moon and star.

Yet, some are born with eyes that cannot see!
And some can see only with aided eyes;
And some just failed correcting malady;
A man who cannot see his soul sure dies.

The face is truly handicapped if blind;
All Nature’s beauty, most blind cannot find,

Respect your mother for her love and toil.

You were my friend then: now almost stranger!
Our friendship appeared once very glorious;
What happened meantime, gives me great anger;
Our friendship no longer remains serious.

Love is not of minds alone;

Love is more than the finest wine!

O man of pride, do come down from your heights!
’Tis lonely sitting in a chair like that;

Please condescend, come down to us to chat.

Change you can your hair color, not your skin;
Change you can your smile and grin: not your eyes;

Change you can your sinful life: Be soul-wise!

Sonnet: True Faith

Yes, faith can lift a mountain from its base!
Yes, faith can turn a river off its course;

Yes, faith can calm a lion as he roars!
