The White Revolution

A poem introspecting the inward journey in pursuit of time!

The world too rushes as far as she can. But her knot with the sun is never wrecked.

The world too rushes as far as she can.
But her knot with the sun
is never wrecked.

To give
a sense to the thoughts
vocabulary to ideas
and after beckoning  the lexis
into a festoon of verse
it’s calm. Perfect  tranquility.

I walk bare foot in the peace
of the personal self.
What an inward voyage is it?
A journey in pursuit of time!

Congregating pointed and touching words
my poetry comes effortless and intrepid.
Churned up,  liberal, free-thinking.
But not infringing ties with truth, the sun.

Rhymes and calculations cannot encumber
the ashen vastness of plain papers its domain!

Meaning to the thoughts and
language to the meanings
in green letters disembark
the white insurrection.

This non-stop sport of hide-and-seek
with the Muse seizes rhythm.
