franz-dvorak_in_the_orchard_1912_oil_on_canvas-large“In The Orchard” by Austrian painter Franz Dvorak (1862-1927)

I am One who carried water
to those who were parched
And stood to the side
while they quenched their deepest thirsts,
Who stepped up when so many others backed away ~
When the call was sounded
I answered with a resounding Yes
Placed the needs of the collective ahead of my own
Renounced the comforts of center and sought out edges
before repeatedly plunging to my so-called life
And walked and crawled
and spilled my blood along the roadway

I am One who traveled bare-hearted
and alone
Whose alienation echoed
even in the crush of madding crowds
I dared to approach the unapproachable
with naked familiarity
Reached out empty hands only to draw them back

On the Last day of the Decade..

Zindagi Ki Johar

The last sun of the decade with a dim red glow
With a dulled gleam painted the sky orange-
The smoke from the banks froze on the river water
Like a blanket, on the chilly cold eventide;
The moon was a silent spectator, as was early for the dusk,
Veiled desire of the unblinking eye , the crescent-
To be a part of the confluence.

The unfathomable notion of time
Renders the state of being and non-being.
Being in the universe actuates the ripple
Waving through the unknown of the infinite macrocosm
Uptill a state of non-being,
A state of complete nothingness.

Where the imagination takes a dip
In the bottomless ocean of vacuity-
The infinity ends to the advent of nothingness.
Like the circle of death and life
The circle of existence; the world circles around
The state of nothing to something-
The pendulum oscillates from zero to infinity,
