A Puzzle Within A Puzzle Poem by Deep Mukherjee

A Puzzle Within A Puzzle

Rating: 4.6

Days diminish in the wrath of night;
A new day is born after night ceases
A puzzle solved within a puzzle
Ripped into broken pieces!

An empty field, stars above
Stars die, blinding skies;
But the spilled silver of moon
Voices buzzed in her spiral eyes!

Pieces put together one by one
The puzzle seems complete to be;
Only to see if my fate is
Playing a puzzle with me!

Sound obscured and senses reversed
The moon shook and curled
Idle mind and severed soul
An empty puzzle in an empty world!

Bridges broke; Rivers burst
New cells grow in place of the old;
A new puzzle ready to be solved
Within a puzzle yet to unfold........


Time like grains of sand
Or heralds of eternity
Webs of deception
A spider trapped in own webs
Puzzle within a puzzle! ! ! ! !

Title is too close to Poe's A Dream Within a Dream, stop copy writing.

ma'am i appreciate your comment; but with the little knowledge i can say that while writing this poem; the idea of 'a dream within a dream' never came up to your mind; so you are wrong in this aspect! ! ! it may be true you didn't like the content though! ! i take that as a fault and will try to rectify it! !
