Poems by P. Vijaylaksjami Pandit
 

Where are you searching  for peace!
 

Where is   peace?

Where are you searching for peace!

In the battle field, where

The innocent   people lost   their   lives,

In the senate halls heated with

The war and peace discussions?

Peace is

Within you and I

In the form   of,

The ultimate intellect,

The ultimate wisdom that

Need to be awakened in

Every one of us that

We; the people of the world

Is a single family, tied with? 

The sacred tread of

Universal love and brotherhood.

Nature’s Treat

The pleasant
Chirping sounds of
The birds on the trees,
The musical melody of
The water falls
Rolling down
The rocky hills,
The soothing touch of
The cool wind
Drenched with fragrance,
The alluring
Attractive scene of the
Sprawling green meadows
Studded with
Colorful blooms,          
The beckoning blue sky
On the horizon are
The nature’s treat
To my senses.

 

Let Me Soar High

Let me sour high
As soul's radiance
Into the space
Darting through galaxy
Speedier than rays of light.
Locked up
In the cage of body,
Listening to lamentations
Noticing villainy,
Wearied and dispirited
‘My soul
Is rocketing
Towards abode of tranquility
Far away from this world
To saunter peacefully
In the Infinite.

Clamour all around
Explosion of bombs
Unfettered wielding of knives
Ravaged bodies-
What fate has befallen!
Hunger miens of beggars
Squalid, ill health, inequality.

I cannot forbear any more
Loud cries of infants
With sunken belly
As no milk to drink
Female babes-
Commodities for sale in the fair.

I cannot see any more
Tearful eyes of teenage girls
Unfortunate lot sold out
To satisfy lust
Of aged husbands.

Mother’s love and affection
Bartered for money,
Fall of human values
Reached its apogee.
Hence now and then
In throes leaves my soul
This material world-
Replenished with
Peace, love, strength and sanctity
Of that spiritual realm,
Returns to this world
The soul to its cage of body
As harbinger of peace.
If every soul
Longs for mercy, compassion
Peace and sanctity
Will not humanity blossom,
And will not this world
Excel Heaven!
