The Soothsayers Words


The curse of the forefathers

would put you to test rather

appease them at the earliest

else you would not be in rest

the saying of the soothsayers

makes me wonder as prayers

would restore peace very quick

the curse and swear will not kick

if one is devoted and true

the elders would bless with all the heart

if we do not stray from the righteous in part

well, this is my own personal thought

like not to impose on any of you

better not be swayed away by superstition

as it would condemn you to a distraction

deviate you from the rightful path easilysoothsayer

The Middle Path


 

The features that I read 
 The creatures that I see 
 The ventures  that I undertake 
 The debentures that I choose 
all go to make a compromise  
 that I acquire through the years  
 that I behold all through the days  
that I explore all the time  
 that I accumulate in durations  
 all go to make an accommodation  
that is found not elsewhere  
 not told in tenements 
not agered in errands  
 always caught in the midair 
 across midway in the midterm 
that be the middle path in turn. 

  

 

 

A Step.


The break came so soon 

nstepot expecting it so soon

he stood  amazed for a second

gathering himself up in a second

he went past the place

as if to find a place

he crossed the path

having to find a new path

he strode straight ahead

thinking of the problems ahead

he missed his step

which was a wrong step

not only for that moment.

but all through his movement.

 

 

 

 

A Straight Road Ahead— An Allegory


straight roadA straight road is ahead.
There seems no turns in the stead.
It is a long stretch ahead
Yes, go straight to the stead.

The way takes you straight.
Exposing nothing in the trait.
It is nothing but straight.
Everything else reflects the trait.

It is monotonous travel right.
Going steady without a flight.
Believe it is a certainty right.
Moving forward without a fight.

Surely, you would reach the destination late.
Nothing to press an acceleration in the slate.
Struggling you achieve the nominations very late.
It is a gradual but slow realization on the slate.

Realizing you get straight to your end.
Crossing the sea of life without a bend.
That is how you have to live up to the end.
Straight in stature without a single bend.

An Exception


The waves toss high and low.

The sea comes in and goes out.

The fire rises up and slumps down.

The forests get thick and then thins down.

The  mountains grow huge and declines down

The path runs steep and straightens out.

Man alone stands out from this natural recourse.
