Alankar (Decor) -19 - Poem by Indira Renganathan

What Could It Be....(On Meditation)
Petrarchan sonnet: -
a sonnet consisting of an octave with the rhyme pattern abbaabba, followed by a sestet
with the rhyme pattern cdecde or cdcdcd

What could it be that hueless fenceless light
That they who oft felt in oft felt long trance
Express not in words but us left for chance
What could it be that hueless fenceless light
That they who hunt backward in forward sight
Who voyage floating formed-formless advance
Who sit haloed speak not, us left a chance
What could it be that hueless fenceless light

Seemed not to rein in closed flappings of eyes
Founder, stumble in there but on life's fright
Want's wish stops not, try hardship's trials wise
Concludes but me not for it recluse their sight
Once and for all musing just on eye's trice
What could it be that hueless fenceless light
