A curious mind


A cerebral flash!

A profound touch

to the tenderness of my soul,

many lifetimes threaded

into a resplendent tapestry

of the universe’s life force.


Its inner sanctum-

sacred, smudged-primeval,

portraits of good and evil.

These thoughts flared

in my curious mind

when you came along.


Wandering pilgrim, triumphing

the great adventure of life’s sojourn,

the crafting of our humanity

as you traverse vast landscapes

of mountains, oceans and skies,

sharpening its definition.


Until that day comes-

when your painter’s brush

completes the grand masterpiece,

exalted with the best.

But of equal significance

is winning the contest within oneself.
