Once again, Happy New Year to All!

I

Are you a body? Or a soul that is passing through different life forms?

I was a stone, an unyielding rock,

A clod of soil was too I.

I was a plant, the fruit bearing tree.

I was the animal roaming free.

I was the plankton, and the fish,

I was the whistling dolphin once.

In the coming dawns of time,

I shall be the future species.

I shall be too God one day.

Time’s stylus wrote my story

On the scroll of space unwinding.

At this juncture, on this earth,

I now wear a human mask.

But I’m an actor in a play,

Many a role I do essay,

Being human is just one,

Know me, I am the deathless soul.

 

Rhyming Riddle

The Society of Classical Poets held a Rhyming Riddle Contest recently.My poem  titled “One or two” was featured under  the ‘honourable mentions’ column.

If you want to check the original page it is here

I am giving below the poem itself

 

One or two

 

My name means two things that you get to see

You consume one, the other consumes you,

As far apart as the sky from the sea,

A part of your daily life are these two

 

One causes addiction, another cures,

Their forms and functions are different too,

One gives you protection from illness sure,

Other-knowledge and entertainment too.

 

From the attacks of illness one screens you

One a screen that takes you to another world

One is given by doctors to help you,

One is bought in vanity truth be told.

 

You can’t live without one is what you think

And the other keeps your health in the pink
