The Spirit Of Fire

Poem By Parameswaran Nair Damodaran Nair

In the surge of wind memories cast,
Somewhere In the nook of my bosom,
Sometimes glows the piece of ember
Smouldering under ashes of dreams

Dreams climbing up the far heights
Like vines with bunches of grapes
Were trapped in wild fire and burned
Reducing to ashes and hot ember

The spirit of fire lying silent in slumber
Breathes in memories, breathes out pains
To cater a new morn to be born anew
As a dragon to swallow the fire of evils

Comments about The Spirit Of Fire

The poem comes up with some most fascinating images involving memories, dreams, wild.fires and ashes which could always add a new meaning to life. I would like to quote from the poem: The spirit of fire lying silent in slumber Breathes in memories, breathes out pains
Many dreams slip from our hand and they become ashes of the past. Profound poem.10**
The value of things that easily acquired fades in no time but dreams really labored is very special. Even fighting with evil seems small. Beautiful insightful poetry sir.

A Homage

I open my window to let in the morning light and the cool fresh air
Though in the midst of a legion of works assigned for the day
The girl servant next door fills my heart with her innocent smile
Like a pure dew drop glares from the grass-top in the dawn

The Bull

Every day I saw him tied to the mango tree
Like man is held fast to life with the cord of endless ambition
I saw in those dying dusks affection glittering in his gazing eyes

My Mom

I was a part of your body for two hundred and eighty days
A full time parasite sucking away all your blood.
Causing numerous ailments, tension, stress and strain
Despite all these you didn't feel a bit of hatred for me mom?

Child And Mother

"Loss of mother is death of the child"
No compensation can make up the loss

All privileges of childhood are denied to him

In Search Of A Goddess

Every dawn is dear to me.
It's then that I see her blushes
reflected in the eastern sky.
While I wander here in her search

The Ektara

The old EKTARA is lying half burned
among the wastes in the street corner
Like a disowned corpse in Manikarnika
