There Flow the Lines of Emotions!

July 16, 2015


There Flow the Lines of Emotions!

The growing womb with pleasing
Movements of the life inside
The dreaming mother caresses the abdomen
Broods deep in the castles of tomorrow
There flow the lines of emotions

The nascent sibling with chubby-cheeks,
Smiles, laughs, weeps-vanishing the worries,
While the mother cradles the 'new-born'
There flow the lines of emotions

Crawling, hopping, stumbling
Even the sleepless yawns of the mother
Soothing lullabies to the lap-lay kid,
There flow the lines of emotions

The chattering child enters the school
Enjoys the 'new-home' with rhymes reciting
Singing songs in group, in plays and games,
Dancing day full dodging the ball,
There flow the lines of emotions

The sprouting desire, meeting eyes
Building the 'heaven of illusion',
They start dreaming-sitting-together,
Hanging hearts beat the rhythms of emotions!

As the years roll down
As they attain adulthood
'Mantras' flow to tie them together
And to be a couple life longer
Where tears flow down while parting parents
There flow the lines of emotions

Years pass by, all grow old
Bed ridden life, whooping
Struggling with pills, drugs and doctors
Care takers all around
They dig out good old memories,
Where flow the words of emotions

Everything should come to an end
So the life to superannuate
When the body burns to ashes
'The rest' go on their lines of emotions!

    The poem “There flow the lines of emotions “ is very refreshing to read with emotions flowing after each stanza as the child gets growing up through all the stages of life. The poem is much reminiscent of “The Seven Stages of Life” by the Bard. However, I wonder why the poet is in such a hurry to bring in the drugs, pills and the doctor “Once the mantras flow”!! It looks the marriage is the culprit here. I am afraid that if there could be eight stages, surely a stage or more could have been brought in to enrich life that ensues between marriage and the “ doctorage”. You need to give some space there.

    Keller's quote is a killer when it comes to describing "Love "!

    As world’s getting more and more digitalized, money’s becoming invisible and intangible, only the purchasing power can be FELT, Keller’s bang on about her prediction (LOL!).
