Looking Beyond Illusive Maya - Poem by ritty patnaik

the rhythm of life
and the passing of time
reminds me of my transition
from the fluorescent illusion,
to a subtle world of reality
and truth.

rummaging,
through the heart strings,
looking for moments,
of continuity and contentment,
looking back
at what i loved and lost,
or lost to find again,
where future seems
a bleak surrender,
to infinity.

illusion,
in its glory of illusiveness,
in the cosmic jungle of faith......
beyond which i look,
for the thousand petalled lotus,
where, peace,
and peace reigns.
