It is a poem about eternal and invisible flow of time. The inexorable traffic on the motorway seems to represent that flow. Time's ravages are absolute, ruthless and all-encompassing. Nothing in this world can escape them.

Uncanny Traffic on the Motorway


Reflect on the uncanny traffic on the motorway,
A visible form of invisible time, irresistibly
Rushing away; its dreary drone –a zooming in
Of the fathomless silence eternity is made of.

The inexorable traffic, loaded with its cargo
Of time shoots straight ahead towards the evening horizon –
Tinged with a mysterious mix of colour, light and shade –
To rip it apart and vanish into the endless void.

Time! That robs man of all the roses he toils for ages
To grow in his tilled garden, and plunders him ruthlessly
Of all the inscrutable pleasures spawned in his heart by
The sweet fulfilling love that all his dearest ones bring him.

The corrosive time inevitably bleaches his dreams,
Like it blurs rich murals on the walls of a mansion grand,
And lies in wait like a slithering swallowing python
To obliterate forever his entire entity.
