LIFE: RIDDLES AND KNOTS




One of my favorite quotes!




'E' IS FOR 'EARTHEN'.

By the way, Wednesday post is for reflecting and articulating the mystery  inherent in the very concept of life. Life is imbued with multiplicity of interpretations, which are not random but follow a complex pattern. My poem (fourteen lines) roughly is in the form of a sonnet and has three stanzas and a couplet. Here it is:





LIFE is akin to an earthen pot,

Ever rife with impulsive brew on spot.

Smoldering embers, readied for vigilance,

Pre-empt the notion that stifles brilliance.


Well, turn the page:


Festering wounds stay embalmed,

In the chink of the soul securely calmed.

Deep hurts and recurring pains,

Sleep uneasily in shrouds of fake gains.


Go to the next page:


Let life be fashioned in metal and stone,

Newfangled world of human clones!!!

The idea of doom is a deadly cocktail,

Entails despondency and all hopes derailed.


The epilogue:


Human spirit is willed never to die,

Like a phoenix the brave hearts will rise. 



Friends,welcome here as always!
