And they all around – silently lie – A Poem by Deepak Menon

And they all around – silently lie

There is a poem in the fall of a leaf,
There is a poem in the bark of a tree,
There is a poem in the flight of a bird,
There is a poem in the wind blowing free.
.
So open your mind and consign to the deep,
The opaque shroud which covers your eye,
And look around and wake from sleep,
The poems which all everywhere silently lie.
.
The poems embalmed in the potters clay,
The poems frozen in the grains of wood,
The poems hidden all along your way,
The poems lying crushed under your foot.
.
You need not to read a ponderous tome,
Like this book you hold in your hand,
To discover the poems which have their home,
On sky and sea and on land.
.
So replace on the shelf this book of sorts,
And break the shell within which you live,
And unutterable beauty will flood your thoughts,
When surrendering, nature its poetry will give!!,
.
