Theme: Life


Unpredictable, yet wonderful
is the swinging grandeur of life
ecstatic in her own majestic play
dancing mysteriously and luring
with inexplicable melodies, that

cajole, seduce, entice, mystify,
enthrall, captivate, mesmerize,
tempt, coax, coerce, deceive,
embrace, accept, resist, reject,
form, sustain and destroy;

creating a complex engaging riddle,
to ensure that man, ad infinitum,
bewildered and overwhelmed,
continues to explore her infinite lore
by being a seeker forever …

Comment Who is behind this catalogue of the 'unpredictable' (Ls1-14)? The poem exults in remaining ' a seeker forever' (L15). It does not seek to approach the source of life, the mystic's contemplation, to see the light by the grace of God and resolve the unpredictable, ceasing to seek, and finding.
