Blink of an Eye

Blink of an eye,
Buddha –
Achieved a state of perfect enlightenment
But this success carried,
Years of persistent determination
To look beyond the failures.

Blink of an eye,
Sprinter –
Upshots a sensational Victory.
But this winning carried,
Months of sustained spiritedness
To look beyond the loneliness.

Blink of an eye,
Carnivorous plant –
Digests the insects with complete gratification
But this consummation carried,
Days of longanimity and diligence
To look beyond the mundaneness.

Blink of an eye,
Bird of Jove –
Hunts its prey with absolute precision
But this attainment carried,
Hours of penetrating observance
To look beyond the distractions.
