(visakhapatnam, india)

' a small attempt to capture... '


there's the sea
there's the sky
the moon and the wind too
a picture perfect setting
for you and i
but
you aren't you
i'm not i

inheritors of the promordial fire
we're just the carriers of the
principle that governs nature
to probe and penetrate
the mysterious and mystic
depths and spaces
teasing man for eons
to undo all the knots
to unravel our existence
at each penetration
at each probing
to reach that fleeting moment
of non-existence
severed from the body connect
detached from the earth-bounds

the elements will never cease
the fire will keep burning
but
you'll not be you
and i'll not be i

If I should die, think only this of me:

That is for ever England. There shall be
In that rich earth a richer dust concealed;
