darkness only holds secrets? what about the light..

If the light carries the stories,
All mysteries of life could be the series,
Of episode to play forward and backward levies,
Catching those light rays without omit and wastage,
Rearrange the shadows, that are virtuous,
The light can’t penetrate through the opaque,
The secret of life is kept there as the coded,
Number, where the light can’t be the monologue actor,
To jump as the ape and angel to be a contaminator,
Light is not a matter to own to inherit to infer,
Light is not the liquor to gulp to fill to be intoxicated,
Light is not an adulterer to kiss to sleep to be the liar,
Light is not a mother to love to hug to be the dependant,
Light is freer than a meteor to travel around the universe,
Light is as fancier as the rainbow, as elegant as a woman,
As stronger as a man, as warmer as a human,
Once permitted it happily pierces through,
With refracted respect or reflected gentleness,
Once not permitted, it minds its own business,
Here at this juncture, the secrets of the universe,
Are recorded, not yet decoded,
Waiting to be invented,
Imagine, the mirror tells the stories,
Of all visuals, the mirrors in the white house,
Where the sun raises in East and West,
Where north and south are not around,
Planets are in perfection collaboration,
This humble human tries to conquer in celebration.

    The secret of life is kept there
    You have gone deep into light from other planets and stars of the universe yet to be decoded. Beautiful imagination. Please also read my poem 'Light Casts Shadow' which deals with a different aspect. Thank you. (Report) Reply
