Acceptance

As the day draws to a close

The Ganga* loses herself in the sea

Poetry words blunt into prose

The night writes the stars for me

 

 

The hawk-eye is fixed on the mice

Worms shift to beaks from the bark

Flowing water hardens into ice

I’ve fireflies to write in the dark

 

 

I am glad that I was born

I am glad that I shall die

I am glad that my path was of thorn

I will never ask Thou why

 

 

 

*The Ganges

  1. I love this:

    “The Ganga* loses herself in the sea
    Poetry words blunt” … especially the idea of rolling poetry words into a blunt. Very clever, if that was intentional.

    Also this section:

    “Worms shift to beaks from the bark
    Flowing water hardens into ice
    I’ve fireflies to write in the dark”

    Great work!

  2. wow. really like that last stanza. there is a strong acceptance in it,
    of taking life as it comes and knowing it will come to a close
    one day, but for today, i will live it.

  3. This poem is so poignant and deep , Sumana. Loved these lines:
    “The hawk-eye is fixed on the mice
    Worms shift to beaks from the bark”

  4. WOW! The flow! Each thing in motion seeking its/their level reveals the truth about human life and endeavor as well. I have tears in my eyes. This is my new favorite.

Thank You :)
