The Departure - Poem by Janak Desai

a flake
pure as can be,

a creation,
a process,
I can not fathom;

descends
...for a time,
and disappears
into oblivion;

I too...
arrived Pure
and will depart, for sure
in a white pure?
how do i make sure?

do I want to be covered?
during the last stretch,
and let the fire ignite my Pile
or, do i want to ignite within
and go the way i came?

Pure, like a Flake
