The Afterthought

Here I tried to reconciliate my failing soul from the glimpse of Light, a heavenly wisdom showered upon my tired intellect. Am I clear in this expression?

The Afterthought



At eventide an ethereal heaven
eventuates at sea-line.
Dusk-dusted breeze wafts
subtle messages
slow-whispers therapeutic airs.

Vast dispersing vacuity
assuages my dispirited
dying soul.
Needles, nascent
from wavering veils
of weaving dark
nimbly numbs
my objective eye.

About the opacity of clustered clouds
speckle only
the sporadic stars.

Slight light
flings a flimsy luminescence.

Beat of musical waters
splutters a thumping andante.

Murmurs no creature
from slumberous stupefaction,
zephyr-whistle or tidal tussle.

A casuarina poses naked,
reclusive in silence.

Passing muses pause...

A sudden brightening
lightning strikes
a momentous panoramic flash.

Late thunder dominates
neaptide rhythms.

Heart shakes with ebb and dub;
Confides.
Have I undergone this Being?

An enlightened mood broods.
The universe ever expands
with Life beyond Death.

Far flung stars implode
the heart of Matter.

But, the Genesis within you
explodes your chemical brains.

And mind responds
battling
for the Becoming.
Even the lifelong learning wouldn't
have given you the joy of this loneliness.

Even the penance unto death wouldn't
have dealt you the Light of this
beatific glimpse.
