Desert of Life

"Desert of Life"
-By Vipanjeet

I have crossed many deserts
In the quest of Life.
Some alone on foot
And some with caravans.

While plodding on the boundless ergs,
I weathered many sandstorms,
Golden grits of time
Blinded the orb of my mind,
And effaced the guiding footprints
On the sands of life.

Lost I was on the bleak wastelands.

I have died many deaths,
Exploring , revising and revisiting
The concept of Life.

Strange were the ways of Death,
Stranger are the ways of Life.
Layers and layers
Of painted hues of memories,
Float and flash in the mind's sky...

Sometimes illuminating,
At other times darkening,
The kaleidoscopic rush
Of forsaken memories
Refuses to pause.

I wish to halt
In the sunlit spring morning,
O ! for euphonious silence
That reverberates through
The oasis of my life.
