Singularity


On the other side of the door
Lies wonder, wonder I;
Or lies truth, expunging the eternal lie,
Of existential reality
That exploded from singularity
And expanded into this vast cosmos
Of ever increasing entropy.
Dim and decelerate,
Eons shall subjugate
The textures of dimensions
And the apparent unwavering intentions;
As the collapse ensues,
Imploding back to singularity
Full circle.

Lull



Like tapestry,
A fabric, woven in time,
Wraps me with warmth
When I have you in my mind.

The rain rejuvenates,
The chirping of the birds elates;
Perhaps, augments this state-

Of surreal feeling,
This inscrutable feeling
Wonder I, what I’d say?
If you were here to stay

Would the spoken silence be heard?
And so would the unspoken words?
As we’d share this rain,
And this chirping of the birds

Let Us Walk to Infinity


Let us walk to infinity
Hand in hand, along the serenity
Of this beach we call life.
And experience every shade of it, while
The trails of our footprints
Have been dancing on and off,
But never less than a set of
Two, one me and one you.
Let us walk to infinity;
You and I, as I dream
Of spending my life with you
And as I hope, you dream too.

Dust to Dust

Image: NASA/JPL-Caltech/Space Science Institute


Guarded by an iron door,
The king sits on his throne;
Without a care in the world,
Couldn't have asked for more

When the wars were waged,
He sought a shred of symphony
Amidst the sorrow, loss and despair
And all the ugly cacophony.

Green fields turned red,
And then, from red to black.
The inexorable putrefaction
Never did bring anyone back.

A moment of clarity, when dawned
The king stepped off his throne;
Repenting the lives he had taken
If only sooner had he known-

Strolling through the cosmos,
We're but a mere speck of dust.
This pale blue dot we reside on,
Has been kind and harsh, but always just.

The long lullaby of life,
Would bring everyone to sleep;
And the universe shall go on
With just memories to keep.

In the grand scheme of things,
All the wars are futile;
And the unfathomable time shall reduce
The kingdoms to rubble, and pile.
