The True Magic Stone..... - Poem by TD. Kumar

The true magic stone............

Poet's Notes about The Poem

The true magic stone
Alchemists through ages have been trying to find the philosopher stone
To convert a base metal into gold
And elixir of life to avoid death and becoming old
Both attempts have failed marking man's inevitable dark zone.

A king came to a sage with a heap of gifts
And the sage living in austerity refused the gifts.
After king's imperious and repeated request, at last the sage whispered.
To the king that he knows the magic art of changing lower metal into gold and will offer this gift

The king's greed was spurred and he agreed to be a disciple
Ready to do anything and attend regularly sage's 'Gurukul' for a month as the sage wanted
After a month the sage asked what other Alchemy he still wanted?
The king said nothing, I have learnt the highest alchemy as your disciple

To transform my own mind and baser drives into purest godly gold
There is no use anymore for accumulating the material gold
He parted as changed man; a real alchemist!
Knowing much higher levels of being than craving for gold
