I FALL TO RISE~by Rajendra Padhi




A life of breath to breath time disports
When the sun of worldly ties take them all,
The stars open the doors of sky longing me
Surround me as a rosary of jewels as their king.

The ladder of words where thoughts ride upon
Flow in my mouth’s flute slept in the spring
Falling swiftly like dew on the petals of my soul.

I am festooned with a garland of peace
Basking in aroma of silent words with stars,
Though I hear the petals falling from flowers
Like my childhood and youth at this hour.

Glossy like the lightening-streaked clouds
Life disappears with a rain of smile and tears
Now I talk to stars gleaming with their words.

I fall as an arrow from a flight for goal
Dodders to clutch the stick of my desires,
My solitude is a princely gift of insight
Treading a new path of the country I belong.

I am spared for debating on life and death
Clad in the rags of opinion great and small
Higher and higher I rise from this little fall.
