Poems by Dr. Jernail S. Anand

LOVE comments of human love and Gods love for for his creation When we lose beauty, or utility,  our worldly partners discard us. Animals whom we love when they give milk are sold out to slaughter houses. But God is a different kind. When we lose all powers of perception and become utterly useless, he silently calls us to his enclosure under the earth. 
We love things which look beautiful 
Or things which are useful.
And when things lose beauty 
Or turn useless, 
The love evaporates.
But men and women 
When fall in love,
These benchmarks of 
Beauty and utility
Turn irrelevant.
Love like hope springs eternal 
In human heart 
And stays 
Even when cheeks lose glow 
And winds lose their blow.
Offspring is loved by the living species 
But when parents grow old, 
Or if some accident 
Breaks a child beyond repair, 
How long can love be stretched?
Animals are loved only so long 
As they give milk.
Or they have enough strength 
In their knees to pull the carts, 
Before being sold out to the slaughter house 
Love of this land has its limitations 
Even men and women who love
Sometimes find it a burden 
And rush to the courts. 
Who carries a relation reduced to a carcass?
Earth is a different type of mother 
And God a doting father 
Who call to their embrace 
Voyagers whose boats were broken 
Before they could cry "Eureka".
SMILE  is a poem which philosophises how a man should conduct himself in the cosmic society if he wants  God's love and reach his Golden Tent.
I received an invitation 
From God.
I wondered what gift I should carry.
The greatest gift for 
The living father 
Was his son's smiling face 
I bought some smiles 
From a flower  shop 
And thought it would do 
I was surprised 
It did not impress God 
And he turned me back 
On my return journey
He changed the entire environment 
And thought now the smile would be original.
On the earth, 
I visited some other shops
But every time I was turned back.
At last God made me sit by him.
Simple, He said 
Can you make my beings  happy?
I poured some water 
Into the drying roots of a few plants 
And placed a small jar of water  for pigeons 
I took some sugar and poured it
On an ant hill, 
They were so happy.
When cuckoo sang, 
And when I saw squirrels 
God saw a smile on my face 
And lovingly he called me 
To His golden tent 
To stay there for ever.
