Strange Universe Really - Poem by Kumarmani Mahakul

They do not know why people born and die,
Even a child does not know why he does cry.
Why people walk and move here and there?
They do not know even why do go to fair.

Care they take of each other, do not why?
Thinking more on this many break in shy.
Sky fills with stars clouds fill with rain drops,
Land produces freely for food more crops.

Science searches for many galaxies and planets
Some sleep in cold for pleasure in cover blankets.
Some get food some do not at all and fall down,
One becomes labour another wears sure crown.

Soul does action but does not able to know,
Snow falls on hill like attitudes soul does show.
Soul again goes away from body, enters another,
He travels in between birth and death further.

Stars and planets are hung in space in dark matter,
Never fall down ever move in track it looks better.
Force of gravitation controls walking of us on Earth,
God knows all secrets of strange universe and birth.

Poet's Notes about The Poem

'Why people born and die they do not know really. Why a child cries also does not know. People move and walk here and there but why? Why do they go to fair even they do not know this. Do not know why they take care of each other. Many break in shy by thinking on this. Sky fills with stars. Clouds fill with rain drops. Freely for food land produces more crops. Science searches for many galaxies and planets. In pleasure some sleep in cover of blankets in cold. Some fall down without getting food whereas some get plenty of food. One becomes labour here and another one wears crown means becomes prince. Soul performs actions but does not able to know. Snow falls on hill top. Likewise soul expresses attitudes. Soul goes away from body and enters again in another body. Further he travels in between birth and death. In space in dark matter stars and planets are hung. They never fall down. Ever they move in track. It looks better. Walking of us is controlled on Earth by force of gravitation. All strange secrets of universe and birth, only God knows.' This poem is based on such theme. This is written in Deogarh, Odisha, India on this day of 17th November and dedicated to the people of the world.

    This beautifully depicts the strangeness of our universe we encounter in daily existence. Material science (objective) does not and cannot have an answer because the ultimate reality (Truth) transcends matter or energy. Only personal (subjective) inquiry (science) prescribed in ancient Vedanta can take us to that reality as experienced by many souls since the ancient time. An excellent poetic expression!

    Many of the secrets of man and Nature are hidden to us! God alone knows everything! Even Science fails to unravel many of the mysteries! A nice poem! (Report)Reply

    Truth of life unknown to many in steps is painted by the Hon.Poet, His poem always creates a sense of grasping- as pupil can through the teacher- the able teacher with ignorant student - I love his poem 'cause feel that I am learning- (Report)Reply
