A Poem by JENY

Some straying thoughts.




So noisy is their life

For clutters they surf


Clutters help them hide

What Jesus would have chided


Jesus loved Magdalena

They are in love with Kareena


Love of Jesus forgot flesh

But they loved only for flesh


They thought night is safe

In the day there is so much to bluff


Day is a time for white cloth

Their night donned in sloth


Night told them day is in the offing

They are comfortable with scoffing.


Comfort was their quest

But they know not how to rest


Knowing rest can make you comfortable

For knowing you should be ‘able’


To be able you should be noble

To be noble you should be lovable.

To be lovable you should…

Marry love

Give birth to love

Eat love

Drink love

Spit love

Blow love

Touch love

Embrace love

And die in love.

Honestly, I couldn't follow some thoughts here, but it's still a very meaningful piece. I definitely love the last several lines. I love the way you describe love as something so mundane and yet so powerful. People should really bask themselves in love.

Keep Writing. ^___^

Hi Jeny,

Yes, Kareena Kapoor. Very famous. Very beautiful. Very earthy and Ballywood. A very nice counterpoint.

"Jesus loved Magdalena
They are in love with Kareena"

They are worldly and do not seek any higher meaning.

I've got to say I like your poetry. I have a bit of a challenge because America English and perspective is a lot different that Indian English and perspective. I've seen this before in the writings of other Indians and I've experienced this first hand in two rather lengthy trips to Indian. But "Westerners" can get through this and see the fine underpinnings of your work. You have a nice contrast going here between the spiritually substantial and the fluff of more ordinary life.

Yes, knowing should be empowering. Why isn't this more common? I think the answer is that generally there is no real "knowing". There is the superficial sophistication, but there really is no deep knowing. That's very uncommon.

This was greatly enjoyed. A very nice piece of writing. Congratulations.

Best regards,

I like this poem. The story at beginning brought me in. I love the ending. You are correct. Love of life and all things will create peace and calm in a life. A outstanding poem. Thank you.

This is good. The only thing that threw me off was that sometimes you used rhyme and sometimes you didnt. But otherwise, it was well written.

Interesting format. A few things didn't rhyme. Nice twist on love...not just a sappy poem:)
