Different Truths publishes the poem MergeEmerge in the KavyaKumbh anthology
Turn twist and tumble I did, long have I travelled
Memories get in the way, yet my golden drape shimmers
My eyes tired, blazing sunlight vaporised my soul
Past, that is me in an endless journey to meet present.
Alone I flow, forward I go, call me not from behind
Face the reality that is today whatever I have got
So fast I rush to catchup with ever elusive tomorrow
Unhampered by load of plans, future escapes from my sight.
Me the now, with view blurred, unable to forget the bygone
I want to fling myself into the arms unknown unseen.
Give me the fruits of yesterday only to remember
They were sour then, now ripe sweet tender and juicy.
The seed dreams tomorrow to burst into a new cycle
When time flows in all directions, life completes itself.
With the same waters a river never flows, it changes
It evolves, dries, swells, awesomely splits, confluences.
Rivers tie themselves together yet keeps self intact
Time runs, time stops but never waits, it flows wearily
When life pulls along, reflections merge and tug
Fog alights, voices unclear, move but with the waves.
