the mad man

what in us

the teaching thorn

the hardened rock

the wonted morn

for him

the swaying of a tender leaf

in his heart

and he dreaming

of suns far from our sight;


which lost their light

in our lives,

for him,

the delights of delight


they made their homes

in his mind

and him a slave of love.

      My expressions in the poem should have induced some thoughts and kindred feeling for who we term as ‘mad’, at least in the likes of you… unfortunately, it evoked laughter, eh? 😀 Wonder why …
