Ode To A Date



It was an ordinary day, smiling with potential,

Life was brimming and date was simple, not differential.

Ashes rose, humanity changed, cries could be heard from heaven;

World changed since and now that simple date is '9/11'

Pin It Now!

  1. very nice way to express 9/11 ...
    very short, but very true

  2. soulful indeed...esp the contrast between the second and the third lines yaa...the chasm between the two seems as wide as the gap between good and evil...humanity will never be the same again as the incident showed how evil people can be...apt words once again...hats off...:)

  3. True, one day some people decided against humanity, and after that day, there has been a fear, people fear 9/11, people fear osama bin laden. Never imagined that death of a person could bring relief to hearts. The advent of kalyug is what I see. Extremely touching one ma'am!

    Timely deliberation makes it perfect.

  12. I still remember the day it happened. The world has definitely changed since that 'simple date'.

  13. Penning down a few words is a very easy task. The difficult thing is to make people like those words. And it's nearly impossible to touch someone's heart with those words.

    You have made 'the difficult thing' very simple, because your few words have stolen my heart easily .You also made it possible
    to touch my heart very deeply.You are really
    great,Saru.

    Many many thanks for this presentation
    to remember 9/11.

  16. i think 9/11 is over-rated!!!!!!!!! poor arabic countries have suffered way more in the aftermath...

    you wrote quite well, just that i don't care much about 9/11...

    ReplyDelete
  17. A sniper bullet indeed. very relevant.

    ReplyDelete

  22. So touched. You said enough in few words.
    Follow each other .

  23. Yes, indeed, it was a calamitous date between civilisation and savagery.

    ReplyDelete
  24. I am very sad to recall that the strings of most useful numericals 911 in US, unfortunately, were attached by few radicals to the curse of terror. Saru..Thanks for writing such beautiful lines in the memory of many innocent people those who were made to sacrifice for no reason or rhyme at all !!
    May God bless Humanity to be victorious for ever !!

  31. i was wondering what to write on 9/11. But its too depressing an incident to write about, I thought. And what you wrote is just a perfect dedication/picture of that gruesome day. Very well put Saru, yet again!

    ReplyDelete
  32. "Ashes rose, humanity changed, cries could be heard from heaven;"
    Only Saru can write such lines!
    Touching.. :)

    ReplyDelete

    ReplyDelete

  35. Hey Saru,

    I need to ask you something. We are running a series at the e-magazine I work at on hobby bloggers. I was thinking that we could feature you for poetry writing. Would you be interested? Couldn't find your email id-so if you are interested could you please drop me a mail at either anneprinita@gmail.com or anne.john@womensweb.in? Let me know!

  36. OMG girl! You're simply awesome!

  37. Once it was just another date,
    A date, a history, perhaps misery,mistry,
    A tragedy, some even consider it a conspiracy.
    For some it brought sorrows and pain,
    While some corporates stands to gain.
    Once it used to be just another date,
    But, not any more.

    Started writing the comment by got inspired by your poem Saru.

    ReplyDelete
  38. We can actually have a bloggers convention..every time you post a poem :) heres a toast for your thoughts...:)

    ReplyDelete
  39. that was short and deep...!!! :)

    ReplyDelete
  40. Very soulful indeed! I salute you! :)

    ReplyDelete
  41. Even though it is over, it isn't. We're still fighting, soldiers are still dying, sorrow and people are facing the long term effects of breathing in the crappy air on that day.

    ReplyDelete
  42. i remember that night on television.. a plane crashing into WTC...i was not able to believe, that it actually happened..there hits me the nostalgia..

    ReplyDelete

  45. A very horrible incident ! No one ever expects it to happen ! The world was surprised ! One stupid idea came to my mind , the brain of this incident was just so full of brilliance and with oozing confidence plus having 1000% demonic thoughts....woooo to this man , he just wasted what God gave to him ! Anyways according to hearsays and news he was already dead !10 deaths he deserved fot until now victims suffered much..families of victims all and all of the US people and to the whole globe even.
