Inquiry - Poem by Ravinder Kumar Soni

Last evening I was told that there is something which activates an inquiry
That raises determination,
Destroys needless longings, and facilitates aspirations to take wings and fly.
But that something does not have a definite form,
Being mercurial and subject to change roams about
Like the unbridled swift mind filling a vast void.
The wise know it as thought or reflection
And others know it as the slim live thread that strings up the orderly and the wayward alike.


But to me, that unknown something
Which always stays hidden from sight
Beneath the very many thin and broad lines etched by fate,
Which shine and mockingly throb,
And whose secrets I must decode ere I decide
That my time is up and I too must leave this stage.
