Invisible Knowledge Of The Infinite - Poem by ritty patnaik

the invisible low pressure,
of the infinite
frightens the mind.

not a sign of rain
or thunderstorm,
nor darkness,
still, a persistent,
cry for existence.

the fall leaves take
a final bow,
and the birds change their
course of journey
faces changes,
from youth to old,
relationship sweats under
some unknown cloud.
all a play of the invisible.

a war between
thoughts and conciousness,
and a war of ego, of words.
cursed soul, hides,
in disastrous cyclones
in the vastness of the infinity

meaningful, atrocious words
in their frenzy look up
to the distant sky

all is quiet and peacefull
the poison today, is elixer
the earth smiles,

all happening,
in the invisible knowledge,
of the infinite.

    Hi Ritty - So many poems to choose from so so much wisdom! ! We all seek knowledge so this lovely poem caught my eye - what did I learn? ?
    Verse One: This is something we all feel. The GHIA force that controls and sustains Planet Earth - an invisible force from GOD which permeates our minds.
    Verse Two: All appears calm - but beneath it all - Nature groans.
    Verse Three: Who controls all this? Autumn - bird migration - the process of ageing. We see beauty - purpose - order - design - all under invisible control. Is all this blind chance or evidence of an immanent Creator God? ?
    Verse Four: INFINITY - ETERNITY these concepts are too vast for us to fuly comprehend. However because we are conscious rational Homo Sapiens Sapiens we form a minute but significant part of the Universe. We all contribute to the ongoing War of Ego and of Words - No Man is an Island.
    Verses Five & Six: Meaningful words - distant skies - poison and elixir. There is always a melange of Positives and Negatives. Hoever most days Planet Earth Smiles beacause she knows - much better than us - that her two neighbours in space - Mars and Venus are literally uninhabitable. I thank God every day that I was born on Planet Earth (think about the alternatives) ..
    Verse Seven: This says it all in a very erudite and precise statement! ! 'All happening - in the invisible knowledge - of the Infinite. Thank you for stirring our minds Ritty. Love in Poetry - JOHN .
