Unawareness - Poem by Ravinder Kumar Soni

Some say that it is the blue colour of the day-lit sky
Or of the deep rolling seas stretching far and wide;
Some say that it is the red colour of the all consuming fire
Or of the rising and the setting Sun, the eye of the world;
Some say that it is the black colour of the Moon-less night
Or of death, or of blindness or the dreamless sleep;
Some say that it is the white colour of the all-revealing light
Or of purity strewn in the path of sight untraced;
Some say that it is the inert clay set upon a potter’s spinning wheel
Or the emptiness the nearby earthen pots enclose though filled with air;
Yet others say that it is speech, the life-breath, the lingering sound of countless heart-beats
All part of life fed by faith
Or the silent screeching of the wayward wind
Which avoiding crowded spaces seeks new directions all the while -
To what end our speculative mind will probe continuing to lead us thus
Through the twisted maze created by our thoughts and dreams
Erected by our hopes and tendencies
With spans of life and impending death as their only base,
I still am not aware of.
