TURMOIL
Virendra Gupta | 22 Nov 2015

A CONTEMPORARY POEM ON VIOLENCE IN WORLD

TURMOIL

Man-made turmoil

Singes nations and continents

Violence in thoughts and actions

Competes with weather forces

To play havoc and turbulence

 

Surface tensions on earth

But a tranquil flower grows

Along with a blade of thorn

Yet the world

Remains violent and torn

 

Cosmic order

Remains orderly

As Sun rises timely

And the moon wanes on its cycle

The planets do not collide

Nor the Universe tumbles

 

The Man

Never learnt

For ages remains ignorant.
