TWO POEMS OF MAHENDRA BHATNAGAR

Mar 13, 2013

...


(1) REALITY 

No end
Of the path
       We keep on walking!

Darkness
Spread out on far off lands
Never becomes less
Even  a  little!

Like a flickering lamp
Day and night
       We keep on burning!

Only a few moments
Are left for me
All of a sudden on any day
The throbbing of the heart will stop!

Knowingly all
We keep on deceiving death!

At each and every step
How can one find his goals?

In life
There are only heaps of pebbles,
       Where are pearls?
¥


(2)   A  MOMENT 

A moment
Only a moment
Snatches away
       Life
All of a sudden!
Yes, only a moment!

Every moment
Has its own mysterious meaning,
It creates
Its own history complete.
Persist
again and again.
      
That is why it is essential –
You live every moment
to the fullest
Before
It crushes your existence!


Every moment
slips away silently
in a similar measured pace,
Inscribing
countless mishaps,
Proclaiming its importance!
