Poetry 2017 Longlist, Swathy Krishna

Swathy Krishna R

Open your windows and doors,
Listen to the chirpy birds in the morning,
Never miss the sunset in the evening,
Touch the fine grasses and feel their gentleness.
Get yourself delighted to see-
the smiles of beautiful flowers.
Hear the voices that are lost in the noise.
See the sights that are hidden amidst the chaos.

Look around and notice the surroundings.
We can see different facets of life,
different people and their different ways.
Wipe out the stains of jealousy and selfishness.
Paint your mind’s canvas with the colours of love.
 Always try to feel the warmth of love,
and work to spread the rays of hope.
Stop surfing and start serving.

If we are peaceful, if we are happy,
We can blossom like a flower.
Delighted in the knowledge of peace,

expose the spirit of oneness.
Nurture the divinity embedded by-
The creator in each of us.
Be like the star which-
Never wavers from the steady faith.
