An anthology of English poems.

Download to your Kindle (eBook)

 An anthology of English poems authored by one and only Praveen Kumar, a bilingual poet and senior police officer from Karnataka.

Praveen Kumar with his more than three decades of government service at senior levels and as a poet of twelve published collections and as an author of five volumes on matters of governance and administration is a familiar face in Indian intellectual circuits. His more than 30 contributions on governance and administration to prominent national dailies like The Hindu, Indian Express, Deccan Herald and Times of India and other periodicals and journals were extremely popular and often sensational by their innovative unorthodox thoughts.


Born  in  Mangalore  as  the  eldest  son  of  Shree  R.D.Suvarna  and  Smt. B.Sarojini, Praveen Kumar graduated in Science from St. Aloysius College, Mangalore, going on to obtain post-graduate degree in Literature from Mysore University. He also holds post-graduate diploma in Business Management as well as Higher Diploma in Cooperative Management. In his student days he was a prize-winning orator and writer.  He lives in Bangalore with his very own Golden Wonder; son, Pratheek and Smt. Jayashree. He is a familiar face in national seminars and TV networks in India as a Poet and thinker.


Stemming  from  his  varied  academic  background,  are  the  lively  far-ranging interests that have impelled him to write on subjects as diverse as matters of public interest and poetry, striking the perfect balance between the pursuance of vocation and avocation.

In unbearable desires I held her tight,
My throbs, her heartbeats rose in unison
Across her fragrant jasmine bosoms,
Crying aloud for my indulgence;
I slipp’d shaking hands to her heaving bosoms
And streams of hot waves spread all over our limbs;

I wrapped her in my soul,
Lest I may lose her yet again;
Alas, my soul was too short, she, too huge
And she slipped because I was unprepared to hold;

She is the soul of the soul of all souls,
She is the light of the light of all lights,
The warmth that sprouts all Universes,
The immortal lamp that lights all the worlds;
She is the divine light of my soul
And unknown horizons of my heart
That descends to my time and space
To unravel hidden treasures within me
And sprouts herself anew in its fold.

Hopes are dopes of hallucinations
That drive life to invisible shores.

I want her as she is,
Neither more nor less,
Nor florid nor aureoled,
But only as she is –
All and whole of her,
As sprouted in nature’s womb
In all natural glory
At its finest hour.

Darkness or sunshine I never care
Until I’m certain, each other we share;
When I go to lose you, it is all bare,
A life to live then ahead I never dare.

From billions afield, what you found in me
So stirring to heap your devout love;
You laid me on throne, laid golden crown
And offered yourself in unparallel’d love.

But, you aren’t just a chapter in my life,
Nor I die to you while you dissolve in the vast;
You are my essence, the light of my life,
You soak my whole in love’s huge bulk
And never I can rise out of your fold.

She was plucked from her soulful past
And securely then tied to that nest
By the golden thread of compromise;
No more could she bear and snapp’d the knot
In devout homage to our soulful past.

Dreams are mere dreams, nothing more,
Easy flights of fancies over realities
While senses are shut and eyes, closed;
A jolt to the world - lo, the naked world
Of boulders and rocks and thorns and gulfs
To drag to senses and stunt the flow.

Timeless is the yarn that spun us close
In warps and woofs of time’s textures,
Timeless am I until I have you for me,
Till I breathe in you, you light my soul.

I know, you lost way in celestial clouds,
Burrowed very deep in unending darkness,
And moving trough and crest to reach me again;
No signals of my probe reach your world,
No signals from you reach my world,
And we grope in shadows to catch the light;

Wnen I woke up from a peaceful sleep,
I found you lying at my side,
Your velvet body luxuriously stretched
Along my height in deep sweet sleep;
Bare you were like golden cupid,
Afloat in ocean of swelling desires;

I look round heaven to have her glimpse,
I find her in clouds in variegated shapes,
I watch sunrise for a clue of her presence,
But nothing ever worked and I feel all lost;
I search moonlights in fullmoon days,
I count all stars in newmoon nights
To trace her path to reach my hope
And trace time’s mansion raised for us.

Like Mahamasthakabhisheka is your love,
Profuse, variegated, colorific, sublime and sacred,
Deeply cleansing ablution of milk and honey,
Of vermilion and sandal paste, curds, coconut juice,
Refreshing and sweet and rich, pleasant to the soul;
Like sunrise after dark is your love,
Quiet and bright, reassuring, transparent,
Full of sunshine, hope, and new beginning,
Promise of new worlds of huge rainbows,
A surge of spirit to vanquish world;
It’s your love, heaven on Earth to my soul.

Shahzia Batool on “She Is Beauty's Soul”

Comment: It was my firm opinion that no praise can be more high as Thomas Hardy's praise of Eustacia Vye in Queen of night: The return of the have shaken that firmness of my opinion...

Shahzia Batool on “Goddess in Human Form”

Comment: Bright as the sun, her eyes the gazers strike
and like the sun, she shines on all alike........
Favors to none, to all she smiles extends
oft she rejects, but never once offends...A.Pope...(Belinda)

One likes to meet such a lovely person...for praising whom the poet never gets short of words n expressions...

Comment: how often we do foolishly let 'that special one' get away. thanks for sharing.

Ron on “Golden Wonder”

Comment: I see that you are master of love poetry. You have a great range of vocabulary to describe your passion for love. It might have been better if you had posted one poem at a time. Most readers will not take the time to read multiple poems. I can see why you received acclaim for your poetry.
