A Riff on Gajanan Mishra's I Have All Ready Answered


gajanan mishra

On the reality of life
I have much pondered,
On its course of strife
On horseback wandered;
What I have seen
Is mostly white and black,
Even off
The beaten track,
I have sauntered,
In the shadows
Of the birds in trees in flight;
Briefly, so briefly
Is our colored sight,
I am a poet,
Wandering the night;
I am a searcher
Of the light:
That is why
I write
