Pondering by the sea shore,

the vast expanse

of the land baffled me!

Gazing at the sunset and beyond,

why would not the fathomless

stretch of eternity,

overwhelm my soul?


Happiness, peace,

‘elan’ passion-

the first two required

for order, sanity,

imperative for our days.

Without the next two,

however, wouldn’t I be

like some dead wood

cast into the flaming fire,

with the core of

my being sorely aborted?


Be not love’s fool in this

metaphor of chaos!

Rather be love’s victor

and clear the trail.

Don’t we believe it is better

to be safe than sorry?

Pragmatics over Aesthetics?
