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.

So we'll go no more a-roving
So late into the night,
Though the heart still be as loving,
And the moon still be as bright.

For the sword outwears its sheath,
