Nothing Unusual - Poem by Bishnupada Sethi

Nothing unusual I see-
Though unexpected things happen.
The events have similarities to the past.
There are rules.
There is an order.
Beyond our consciousness
Things perpetuate.

Not yet known-
How many species
Observe the matter and lives
Beyond their limited senses?
We are bound
By the limits of a phenomenon
Called death.
The living ones miss
Some friends they once
Nudged together.
No one knows what's lying ahead
Beyond one's time.

The Sun will rise and set,
So also the moon without fail
There will be cycles of seasons.
The oceans and seas,
The streams and rivers,
The hills and forests-
Surely will exist beyond our times.
Unanswered will remain
Certain queries.
We will become numb
In the struggle for survival.
We will not seek meanings
The very next moment.

    Although unexpected things are happened still there is something similarity of the past and it happens followed by certain rules. Death is sure as birth is and it is too happen as per Karma's law. Dear Bishnupada, you have inscribed this poem hauntingly with the rules of the nature. Each and every line is important and didactive. The last stanza is most impresive. Let be quoted some lines...

    The Sun will rise and set,
    So also the moon without fail
    There will be cycles of seasons.
    The oceans and seas,
    The streams and rivers,
    The hills and forests-
    Surely will exist beyond our times.
    Unanswered will remain
    Certain queries.
    We will become numb
    In the struggle for survival.
    We will not seek meanings
    The very next moment.
    Thanks for sharing this beautiful poem.10/10
