I walk on a road lush with dreams,
a road of forgotten and veiled dreams,
sometimes slowly, sometimes gaily,
sometimes lost, sometimes profound,
I walk a road of unknown mysteries,
fervently finding my way through the endless path.....

A wanderer's search....



He strolled through the woods
searching for a reason
a reason for existence
a reason for his creation

and that lay
between galaxies and ground
beneath skies and souls
burrowed in mountains and minds

tired he was of a moribund life
Work pressure and endless strife
and somewhere in his mind it reigned
higher has to be life's aim

and so walked on for aeons
till no thirst or crave perturbed
sullen and frayed
deciphering the cryptic colours and curves

mystified by marvels
he bowed in amazement
"speak to me O' universe
of your signs and ciphers"

with moon and stars as companions
and sun to elevate his patience
he deciphered the real existence
clearly differentiating mirage and reflection

the world is flat
huge and layered beneath
illusions are everywhere
except skin deep

In the wake of night
so much to see , hear and embrace
yet nothing is as it seems
the closest ones hidden underneath

and finally the universe did speak
when all concealed signs had unveiled
and fuming mist wiped out
on a night so dark and bleak

he stood in a state so euphoric
divinely composed yet a lunatic
embossing wisdom , engraved passion
he had reached his destination

It took no chants on shrines
he confirmed with a lilting mind
'what is utmost superior and true'?

"It is this soul which resides in you"

    Brilliant.

    *thunbs up*

    I think at the moments of our best performance or the greatest moments of meaning in our lives, we stop being perceivable for others.

  16. Hey, Hi
    sorry was a bit late to read this one...

    you have discovered the journey so beautifully...and also given it a perfect end where the joourney is not what matters, its the realisation of the self...
    nicely penned...nice thought.

    Regards,
    The Silhouette...

  26. So many true and wise words here! I sometinmes feel like this wanderer - surronded by illusions, striving to find my place in the world and find a reason. Love those last lines:
    ''what is utmost superior and true'?

    "It is this soul which resides in you"'

  30. A great journey of life describe so beautifully well, I love it.

  31. This is a fun piece. I appreciate the lightness and humor brought to a serious subject of what is actually an important quest, even though there is the typically human absurdity of traveling far and wide to discover what is close to home, even inside you. Like one of your other commenters, I was particularly struck by these lines:

    "he stood in a state so euphoric
    divinely composed yet a lunatic."

    Set up by the earlier parts of the poem leading to this, I could barely wait to read what the rhyme to euphoric would be. I knew it would be good.

    Thank you for this contribution to the Rally.
