Susanta Pattnayak

(Bhubaneswar, India)

And thus began the (cosmic) life


… And thus began the (cosmic) life,
The plants, animals, stars and the galaxies
Are the transformation of this singularity, the all encompassing absolute reality
Of knowledge, ignorance, happiness, suffering, the substratum of everything.

Creation and Destruction of universe, a process perpetual
To which, I'm the beginning, the end and the middle
Dimensionless, endless and indestructible
Said so, asked HE, 'How would you like to see the end! '.

I saw, a luminous explosion, in the distant sky, a supernova, as the star dies
The cycle of stardust, the formation of stars, creation of life, as it all begins
I saw, in the zenith, a red giant, a white dwarf, a nadir black-hole, and in the oblivion
The neutron remnants floating around, A Big Bang..and Universe was born!

… And thus began the (cosmic) life.

Poem of the Day

poet Robert William Service

Just Home and Love! the words are small
Four little letters unto each;
And yet you will not find in all
The wide and gracious range of speech
Two more so tenderly complete:
