By Mory keita

The sun shades in darkness when I close my eyes,
Stars and moon disappear when sun rise from its sleep,
The stillness of night become troubled at dawn,
Peace is unsustainable in face of greed and hatred,
Love and friendship vanish  into oblivion with time,
Wisdom and deeds of the saint may not be remembered,
The universe has a beginning in the big bang and an end,
Life is but a brief journey of joy and sadness,
All fade in the silent harmony of death,
Tell me, O death what is eternal? Tell me, what is man?

The poem ends with timeless questions, though who can be sure if the answers would be timeless as well. Such an appropriate picture to complement your words. Thanks for posting for One Shot. Appreciate it.

Inspiring Mory! I feel inclined to write a poem in answer to your questions. Simple and beautiful. =*

Questions ask
when one is alive
but even death
may not answer.

Carrie Van Horn said...

The questions of life make such great poetry subjects. This poem is sad yet beautiful.

A very thought-provoking piece, Mory..
All your points ring true, and actually makes one wonder: What's the point of anything?! And yet, in our lifetimes, we make them matter... gave those things/sayings/acts/people all the importance that we possibly can, and wish to. (sigh)..
I really enjoyed reading this one! A cool One Shot! :)
Thanks for sharing..

I like the "Yin and Yang" of this poem: the juxtaposition of beginnings and endings; daytime/nighttime.

All fade in the silent harmony of death

thankyou for serving up a deep, thought provoking piece...i love stading on a cliffs edge looking at a full moon with the sea crashing beneath and the wind rushing up over makes you realise how small our own journey and being is but no matter how small it still has its own relative importance..cheers pete

ZENDOM said...

I cannot see what is beyond here
But my Soul is alive as it is so near
I have so much from one thing inside
That IT seems so invincible and goes for the ride
As to death we depart but for the time being on hold
I have taken a solid stance in my living and made it so bold

enjoy as well Mory(+)

We are the children of immortal bliss,
once you transcend the idea of body,
you become immortal at once!
