Japan - Basudev Paul (India)




-         Basudev Paul (India)



The genesis of Japan sprouted as 'kanji'
Born in strife and war, Jap flash-forwarded

Hard work of the land made it envying
Wonder is the expression the world saw!

The land of rising sun singed in acid test
That phoenixed its prosperity of its own

A niche carved so skillfully brims in joy
Endowed with innate flourish, cultured

All arenas powerfully stood by its right
Discipline on utmost priority the citizen prides in

Harmony is the image of solidarity
Potter of world class silenced the other

Believer of Buddhism Jap has its tint
The geo-Japan is a mystique wrap!

Dwarfish in stature the Jap shines forth
Through the falling sunlight straight to it

The mother earth rose being fresh
With the unfolding of the glorious

Art & literature, things to be proud of
Maple leaves are on the pantheon, frill.


Industrious have been the people of Japan

This signals the possibilities for the morrow.


The joys of self-renewal are self-creative

And the promises of a techno land tuck in.
