The Abstractist


















By the virtue of myth, an explanation was tried
Humble by the fleet, thoughts march up to the night
The soul lies in dreams with eyes tightly shut
Encircled by the spectrum of polychromatic light

Wishful thinking on the brink of a sunrise
Old ways are sinking , giving way to the wise
The soul lies in dreams with heart open wide
The gift of abundance cant be more precise

Sweet fragrance of self-discovery molds the mind
A lesson engraved with every moment unsigned
The soul lies in dreams with clarity in choice
The unification of the day leaves the answers behind

The chase for the meaning is the collage of space
Origins of life makes every move without a trace
The soul lies in dreams with a cosmic resurrection
Into the crater of nameless , the peaceful ways

Time has frozen, its only a factor with now
Flying grains of sand creates the bed somehow
The soul lies in dreams on this bed of earth
Embraces a wisdom, seeking the clear skies above

So divinely is the world organized that every one of us, in our place and time, is in balance with everything else.
Johann Wolfgang von Goethe (1749 - 1832)

Encircled by the spectrum of *polychromatic* light

I don't understand where on earth u get your adjectives from :P. They are so peculiar yet interesting.

The soul lies in dreams with eyes tightly shut
The soul lies in dreams with heart open wide
The soul lies in dreams with clarity in choice
The soul lies in dreams with a cosmic resurrection
The soul lies in dreams on this bed of earth

Metamorphosis of the soul?
May be we should replace the *lifecycle of butterfly* thing in our prelim school science lessons with this :P

Nicely penned Rag :)

Rags,

the immediate feeling i got after reading is: that all earth-trapped souls have awakened to their true images...i could imagine a visual too: all souls r rising above towards a bright light just like gas bubbles trapped inside a liquid.
if this is what u envisioned then my million votes for it to begin happening right away..our planet needs an 'awakening' ASAP:)

cant copy/paste everything what impacted me..but somehow i feel these sentences were trapped deep inside me too..i felt as if i got relieved although its ur expression...thanks for that, counterpart!

May the force be with u...take care..work hard

@nan : Ha Ha ...you know my views about formal education. Replacing the lifecycle of butterfly with soul metamorphosis will piss off the system !!! Nice one nan ...really its double the fun reading your response. Thanks again :)

@vinnie : I'm glad that this poem had evoked your imaginations by a certain degree. I envisioned almost the same thing but on a different colorset , but overall soul awakening has its roots deep inside us.

Well I guess we have spoken about time and soul for a quite sometime now ..I have something new coming for you :) thanks for your heartfelt response.
