Ephemeral Passages


Current events are conducive
with nonchalant seeming pace

When future springs surprises
with time will learn to face

Cheery current subsistence
hence freewill I propound

Confines once start stifling
I might've broken new ground

Perceptive mind still active
with inspirations all about

If illusions start dissipating
then new pastures I would scout

Resources just about adequate
for me to earn my daily bread

In probable days of utter penury
accept all fate has for me spread

Traversed I have vast distances
to seek tranquility for the mind

Treks in future if improbable
then peace within I would find

Environs are lush and verdant
with magic for one to behold

Even autumn spreads enchantment
with different shades of gold

Reality a perplexing passage,
through many an abyss and ridge

Each nuance to be contented aptly
while coming to cross any bridge

That—"Heaven" is—to Me!
