A Poem by Manoj J Lekhi (Amrut Vivek)
Oh, what a beautiful night
I am flying high like a kite
The moon is shining so bright
It has made my heart dance in delight
The cool wind touches my soft body
How god has made such beauty,
I am simply amazed at this
I am in the middle of a vast open space
Both within and without
Both inside and outside
Life is such a beautiful gift
I experience that we are all nomads
coming from I don’t know where?
Just come to enjoy this beauty
Going to I don’t know where!
Sometimes I wonder, how come I missed all this earlier,
Life is such a great opportunity, a wonder.
I am just amazed with this beauty
Life is nothing but a thunder.
I don’t know what I am writing
But something in me is itching and biting,
Words are coming from nowhere
I guess, you got to be somewhere
These words may not make much sense
But what really matters, is I am overjoyed
My pen is just flowing
I don’t feel like stopping.
I feel poetry is oozing out
It also feels like some sort of madness
O; have I become a poet
or have I gone insane?
Insane, Yes that’s what has happened
Insane with this incredible nature
Insane with this uncountable stars
I don’t know what’s happening but its
lovely to go insane.
O god I am terribly in love with you
I am terribly in love with everyone
I am crazily in love with everything
Alas, I am madly in love with myself
