Deep



I am here, nobody seen yet-
Inner, inner, never caught,got,
Nothing, nothing, so ever perceived-
Not at all, a bit so received,
Oh so meet, and meet, where?
In the secret paths of life, so wear?
And have to know, the naked truth-
When so meet, the path on worth?
Where and when, the meanings be known?
Oh the wondrous paths, all well known?
And the blessings, blessings wish-
Of the path, miraculous, so just,
Oh the virtue, so established,said-
How many gods, turned good ?
And all action oh established straight-
How many gods turned wise, so right?
Secrets, secrets, well established oh weighed-
How many gods turned nice so made?
All, all said,as said, said-
All, all know, as known good,
All, all turned, as turned, turned-
All so gone, as gone, tuned,
Until say, so wait and wait-
Until know, so wait and wait,
Until filled so wait and wait-
Until worn, so wait and wait,
All so did wait, went and gone-
All those gone, oh returned back won,
All so returned, went and gone, so turned-
All those gone, oh never returned,
Oh so know, the depth of waiting-
All so met deeper and deepest quote,
What all seen all deep, utmost deep-
That so to see, oh deep, abyssal deep .

William John

I am born and brought up in Kerala state, in India. In Kerala, Thrissur city is my native place and now I am residing at Kadavoor village in Ernakulam district.I am a senior lawyer at The High Court of Kerala. Literary talents all dwelt in my blood from my very birth itself. From, while studying in the primary classes, I wrote stories, dramas and poems in Malayalam.While studying in high school classes I wrote stories and poems in English. Then it grew in me as an endless blessing craze. I do write in English as well. I do write stories, novels, dramas and verses. I have written more than twenty thousand poems in Malayalam, about twenty novels and more plays.In English, now I have completed more than seven hundred poems. I think, very soon that it will grow to at least a five thousand. I am so much pleased and thankful to those nice friends who go through my poems all over the world and shower the rain of horripilate congratulations. Yours,William John(Email: adv.williamjohn@gmail.com)blog: http://leopardmom1.blogspot.in/facebook fan page : http://www.facebook.com/PoetWilliamJohn?ref=ts more…
