Neck deep I envision for

The one who is Omnipotent to be

I immersed shoulders to see

The Solace that I seek. The Unseen.

Arms and hinds covered with brine

Waiting for the Omnipresent to reveal

Stop the hunger! I plead, where is the sign? I cry,

purge the throbbing pangs, I weep, all my toes

Buried in the darkness of saline.

Bravo!! HE says, the voice of Almighty,

At least your eyes covered not, He Bellows

‘For I blessed your arms to give, but you hide in marine’.

‘I gave legs so you trod and help seek. Wipe clean

slate of your heart and help to be

your brothers’ relief’.


In shame I turn to the horizon high

For forgiveness and promise

to help feed the hunger

at all times.

  1. I wish I could see into the soul of life as well as you can 🙂

    • You are too kind with your words. We were created by God and the beauty of it is—-He created us in His own image. So you are equally blessed with insight. Thank you very much.

  2. I see so much depth, reading what most of the time can only be felt and self understood because of introspective times! Truly marvelous !

  3. I think it’s always best to try and do as much as possible, let your values speak through your actions. If we only wait and hope, then nothing will be done! A lovely poem. Thanks for contributing this week, Shashi!
