In A Deer Garden

In A Deer Garden short poem

At Sarnath the deer park where
Gautama the Buddha first taught the dharma


Enlightened lord your wisdom is our knowledge ,
sufficient is that knowledge to ensure
our covenant with wisdom in its turn .
At the cliffs-edge ,where we nurse a natural pressure
biased slump-wards, immediacy of desire
adjourns the cause. The drop may claim
all complacency and complacents at their game .
Lord ,aid this luckless race to somehow stall
their luckless times . Your coverall
would articulate the latent wonder if at all
the landward retraction from the edge
is patronized by possibility . In your paternity
is your privilege to bless into marriage
the bride in wisdom and a groom humanity .


Only what the world wants the world gets,
whatever it wants it heroises ,what it heroises
It emulates ,what it emulates, it protects
also achieves to the extent it devises
naked effort ,and excises opposition .
It paginates only two books (those of losses
And gains) relentlessly from election ,selection .
Utile thoughts , for ‘this- best- form- of –life-
On –the- worst –plane- of- living ‘ I can offer ,
If they work out and willingly chose as demister ,
This “Wisdom”, as you circumstate my life .
Whatever it has , the world wanted and worked for ;
How may I enforce my alms upon their concept-
When the world knows its poverty , it will accept !

Garden short poem

Although tomorrow isn’t promised. Today was once tomorrow; Becoming yesterday. A depth often taken for granted. Consider waking up one of the most beautiful of arrangements. Perfectly gift wrapped and opened each time we blink. Eyes coming to full bloom

The Garden ode

I went to see my dad today, across his green garden strolled, Stone monuments graced my way, standing tall and covered in mould, Flowers in their vases began to sway, bare trees behind were shaking, I swallowed back the tears
