Shallowness - Poem by RAJ VIKRAM

I will berth somewhere
around this port of life
Iam an ancient ship that forgot
its knots and failed to cover
the nauticals of life's distances.

Braved the rough seas that
seeped in through the cracks
in my being but I became a shambles
and I just scrambled
to this port for a new lease.

As if in a vision I saw this island
in treacherous seas that stretched
on with the waves that were
unwavering in their craft of
leading journeys to wrong ports.

The port of life amidst the seas
where boring infinity rules roost
I will disappear by withering away
in the inviting shallowness of
life gulping nectar of the finite.

And in the soothing of womb
of this port where life thrives
I will take root and then be reborn
The port where I am berthed now
The place where I will be reborn.

Permeating here is life
impermenant but life neverthless
Ships know the infinite but
finitude is peace and the
shallowness here promises peace.
