From the Garden of Time

As the year turns over
a new leaf,
And roots strain
to clutch the earth harder,

A flower blossoms
Smiles
And is gone quick,

Like a good poem
Escaping its words.

    Great musing Kameshwar….pithy, powerful, poignant verse.

    I would like to add two lines here, with your kind permission..

    A flower blossoms
    Smiles
    And is gone quick,
    yet, the fragrance lingers..

    Like a good poem
    Escaping its words.
    to come alive on the pages..

    Every year leaves its mark on the sands of time…

    Thank you Kameshwar for sharing a fine poem…

    Dear Kameshji, what a good poetry it is.It was long back famous in Andhra Pradesh where a poem was generated instantly by two people at a time,half of the poem each one sharing.This was called “Janta Kavitwam”(Dual throated poetry if Ican call it so.Now in ur case a flower is created by one and fragrance is added to it by another. Your are already aware of the sloka ” vagrdhaviva smpruthau vagardha prathipratha ye jagathaha pithrau vandeParvathee Parameswarau.Let Lord Arunachaleswarar throw new light on your poetic brilliance in the new year.Happy New year to both of You-Murthy

    Hi Kamesh, I doubt that these words you wrote will try to escape either this poem or the reader🙂
    Happy New Year to you and yours.
