Retreat Into Eternity

With mad pursuits,
Vain vanity and vices,
Momentary gratification
Of carnal desires,
Ego and boasts
Of transitory power and strength,
This fleshly shaped frame
Exists in red and blue
As an intimate host
Of fallen angels - soul
In sprawling stretch
Of the physical world
With pervasive consciousness
Thriving with tremendous energy
Glowing and billowing
From the vibrant divinity
Till the gradual aging
Culminates into
Locked spark's retreat
To Eternal home!

Flame of life extinguishes at last,
Handful of mere sanctified ashes
Scattered, vanish into
The ultimate invisibility
No wall of grief and sorrow stands.

Sublime thoughts
Ethically churned out
Philanthropic deeds
Our hands do
Exist in all praise
Floating on myriad waves of time...

Comment Really a nice poem on a great theme of mortality of vain glory. Until the flame of life resides in the body, we stretch our all 10 organs along with mind and intellect to fulfill our carnal desires. We are never anxious to quest from where we have come, why we have come, what's our duty, why we die, where we go after death and so on. We remain absorbed in the material world like a bee collects honey from a lotus and forgets to return before sunset.
There are only three consequences of a material body- if it is burnt, turns to ashes; if it is buried, turns to ants and if it is fed to scavengers, turns to chit.
So if anything remains after death is the praise for Philanthropic deeds
