1 .Spectre Of A Treeless Landscape.
A lone crow sitting on a lonely dry twig of a tree
Seems to be brooding over the fate of this
Fast-disintegrating world in the coming years.
When trees all around, will become victims of
The greedy population;Perhaps, its anxiety is centred
Not only on its survival, but also on the mankind’s
Funeral sans wood.
2. A Pebble.
A poet is not a superhuman,
But only a pebble, capable of causing
Eve -widening ripples of love
On the lake of humanity.
3.In Search Of An Invisible Boatman.
Lone is the boat in the mid-river;
Alone I stand on the bank.
I want to go to the other end,
But the boat will not come to me
Sans a boatman. So I build
A bridge of desire between me and the boat
And walk upon that bridge;
I keep on walking…But I reach nowhere
And remain where I am.
O, I am helpless, for, I cannot reach the boat,
Leave alone the other end!
O,where is the invisible boatman
I have ignored hitherto?
Source-Poems by Dr. Venkataramana K.V.
Death is man’s ultimate refusal
To move with Time.
5.Facts And Fiction.
Birth and death are facts of life;
And in between, it is a fiction of mind.
My philosophy is not meant for
Dispelling sorrow, pain or chaos in the world,
For, they can be tackled by an ordinary mind;
But it is meant for those who want to fathom
The spiritual depths while crossing the ocean of life.
