Metamorphosis - 'After Math'


Look!
My existence graved with death-
You forget me-
As speed squander particle existence-
earth could not remember-
Either itself will be deformed or dissolved

Memory decays as rolling stone-
Forget and fade-twinkle childhood,
As daffodils wither at evening-

Today's child -the father of tomorrow-
Aye reminisce the past and decide the future,
today's peppy stream with its chime-
tomorrow's buried river-articulate history
Civilization, un-civilization and fashion,
Those are transfigured by time-

Lie become truth as the sun rises on west,
Man made conversion with lie-
As politics become poly tricks-

Igneous to metamorphic rock,
by the nature and time-the ultimate truth
From summer to winter, winter to spring -pouring
Sweet sweating- snowflakes- cuckoo sings
Season changeover and being-

But After Math-
Two things are still virgin- untouched,
My love, my soul- the power of God.

Poem of the Day

poet Dante Gabriel Rossetti

Young Love lies sleeping
In May-time of the year,
Among the lilies,
Lapped in the tender light:
White lambs come grazing,
White doves come building there:
