SPECTRUM OF DEATH


SPECTRUM OF DEATH
esspeecee…14.09.95.

How death looks like?

As spectrum of
Cosmetic butterfly. [1]

How death smells like?

As drizzle sodden
Droughty clay. [2]

How death talks like?

As splashing of brooks
Over scattered stones. [3]

How death comes like?

As cat walks of hyena
For the prey. [4]

How death punishes like?

As rupture of
Life’s rapture. [5]

How death rewards like?

By keeping indelible footprints
Of my worthlessness. [6]

    Wise Aristotle said, ‘Only thing I know, I know nothing’.

    ‘How death rewards like?
    By keeping indelible footprints
    Of my worthlessness. [6]’

    Poet may be influenced by this thought I guess
    A wondrous wise trip I traveled thro’ this poem
    Thank you Sir.

poet John Clare

I love to see the old heath's withered brake
Mingle its crimpled leaves with furze and ling,
While the old heron from the lonely lake
Starts slow and flaps its melancholy wing,
