This week, our awesome Uma has graced us with one of her poems.. So, here's Uma, for you...
When I ,Umamaheswari Anandane of Inside My Poem Book was asked to write a poem about food,drinks and indulgence from jingle poetry, I was struck with two thoughts to choose form : the former being the normal food for growth and the latter being food that is ensconced everywhere.I choose the latter and here it is for you.I also choose to do the image myself for easier understanding of the poem .Hope you all enjoy it.
Food being indulged to every whim satisfying human body
Stimulating the taste buds with it's quality and quantity.
The deep silence that is achieved in meditation
Helps in nourishing the spirit that lives in affliction
A food that makes the lives on the earth functions
Making love that nurtures the future generations
Inculcating good knowledge fulfilling the thirst of mind
With cultured people and innovations among other living kinds
Time , a miraculous food for Earth-space continuum
Instilling the past , present and future occurrences in them
The food in form of gas , the Oxygen , to and from CO2
For maintaining existence , where breathing resides
The biological food cycle on earth describes
That every output is an input prescribed
The food for every soul and mind depends upon totally
Of requirements that arises both internally and externally
Ensconced in forms of matter where solid, liquid and gases thrives
Indulging in every whim of hunger in all Living Lives
Thank you, Uma, for this awesome foody goodie poem... it sure has made a few of us hungry for more...
