Sunday Poem By Manimala Chatterjee
The Lifeline of Civilisation
Let me flow with purity, I’m the flowing fluidity,
Let me flow with freedom ,I ‘m the deluge of destiny,
None can stop me from flowing, it’s my inborn quality,
I nourish the civilisations from the time of unknown infinity.
I emerge from the depth of the mountains as a flowing cascade,
Gushing and gurgling I pave my way gaily breaking all barricades,
Forcefully I cross the pebbles and boulders like a freaky teenager,
I crush all the trepidation of bondage like the daunting daughter of nature.
Forests, fields, towns and civilisations I nurse and cherish them all,
I:m the cherished cheerfulness of life force that gives happiness the clarion call,
I’m the cause of clouds, the rain and the lifeline of the human existence,
I flow between the two shores happiness and sadness to keep aglow the creation!
