Changing Places


In a Jeweller's window
is a diamond solitaire
bathing in the rays of the spotlight,
dazzling my eyes with many colours.

As I move to left and right
the patterns shift and change.
A thought crossed my mind:

illumines the souls of sages,
giving birth to various religions?

Surely Truth is One,
sages see it in many colours,
and present it in various patterns.
If you doubt it, exchange places.

poet Ralph Waldo Emerson

Knows he who tills this lonely field
To reap its scanty corn,
What mystic fruit his acres yield
At midnight and at morn?

In the long sunny afternoon,
