Sublime Joys

Sublime Joys

A Poem by Kajal Gulabani

Forsooth, a roller-coaster day at hard,
With all his might, Zeus had played,
As pearls of drops crashed apart,
In fierce rage on hills they laid.

I wobbled on the streets in woe,
Run for my bread.. Run for fame,
Who is a friend ? Who is a foe ?
In quest of truth and holy flame.

Nay, 'tis not a life but a WAR,
Ay, with self and every dominant voice,
Alas ! Caught a glimpse not so far,
Of a retarded skull in great rejoice.

His wrenched nerves were in glee,
As oblivious as a mystic infant,
My petty spirit drowned in life's sea,
His dogged dazzle won over my rant.

Bravo ! His smiles didn't falter in weary weather,
Making me thus live anew : in a world with 'salt and pepper'

You're very welcome
I agree with John, this is my favorite piece I have read on here so far. It's nice to come back after a weeks departure and read something as wonderfully structured and creatively penned as this.

Wow.. M glad. Many thanks John .
The skull stanzas were decent, but most of the piece has almost a robotically-generated quality to it; where one puts a quarter in a machine and the device spits out a poem. I have trouble with the forced archaic diction.

Cool !
interesting and very well written piece. i think i read it three times before i felt the actual rhythm but it does work once you get it, it is just not so very obvious, which is why i find this interesting and unique. very nicely penned!
