' A Small Attempt To Capture... ' - Poem by indira babbellapati

there's the sea
there's the sky
the moon and the wind too
a picture perfect setting
for you and i
but
you aren't you
i'm not i

inheritors of the promordial fire
we're just the carriers of the
principle that governs nature
to probe and penetrate
the mysterious and mystic
depths and spaces
teasing man for eons
to undo all the knots
to unravel our existence
at each penetration
at each probing
to reach that fleeting moment
of non-existence
severed from the body connect
detached from the earth-bounds

the elements will never cease
the fire will keep burning
but
you'll not be you
and i'll not be i

    The second and the last stanzas are marvellous. The inevitable trends of live have been effectively implied. (Report)Reply

    While it is true that there is nothing
    new under the sun, this is a very compelling
    piece of work. Excellent, Indira.

    Love,
