Isthmus of Life

conceive     brook ceased babbling

                    wild breeze stopped flowing

                     birds fogot at dawn chirping

                     bourgeon shying blooming

believe           abundant primodial naturality

                       creating eternal universality

                       unmindful of imminent inevitablity

                       transforming hope in futility

perceive          moments of existence destined

                        process of living be refined

                        all conflicts of mind to rescind

                         soul desiring open to unwind

renounce ethical malfeasance

only one life to make penance.

                                               ~Shyamal Mukhopadhay
