Straight or wavy

How line travel? It is intriguing utterly

To an observer it appears as straight

In terms of its acquired position one may love to praise

But nature draws all in spirals

Our spectrum hardly having the capacity to gauge her whims, which is phenomenal!

We human are captivated in our own design

Claiming we alone having the capacity to overpower nature and reign

Forgetting we too are the creation of nature

Only in E.C.G. monitor straight line determine our termination of odyssey without any clamor!

I wonder the honesty nature manifest

Drawing everything in our spectrum in an opposite trait

It is the human eye

Which alone having the capacity to vie

Making all convenient to us in rhythm

Where human cerebral plays the key role to decipher all with hectic algorithm

Remaining itself in a hidden state

Mystic expressions it makes with an amazing haste!

We have observed how ants are inclined to move

In a straight line which surely attract us to allude

We don’t know what view they possess

Is it sensible for us to assess?


We only having the capacity to think and perceive in nature

These majority creatures are deprived of out of their nomenclature

Still we cling to show our obsession for straight line

This only enables us to make a short cut design

Confuse us with its deceptive glow

Though rainbow’s arc bears the eloquent testimony of straight line’s confusing show!

I firmly believe light is the darkest episode

I am amazed by its velocity

Though quasar possess thrice of its capacity

Three in one thus always plays an intriguing episode

It alone dictates us by hiding its intriguing role to pull us in life’s crossroad!

Amazing words Debasish Majumder I love double rainbows too, I was playing tennis last week when suddenly I stopped and then a double rainbow appeared, so wonderous. In buddhism they say the rainbow is eternity’s expression of delight. It cannot but be auspicious, even if it portends the demise of a great master. For such a master – now merged into ‘clear light’ (prabhasvara) of the death process where the most subtle level of mind is experienced as pristine inner radiance – there is no sense of ‘leaving behind’, the notion of self and others having been transcended. For the ‘others’, the disciples or students, there is inevitably a great sense of loss and grief. Yet the miracle of the master’s departing rainbow will always remain as a great source of strength and inspiration for the devotees. The vaulting arc of the rainbow is known as ‘Indra’s bow’. A great quote by Gilbert Baker ' What the rainbow has given our people is a thing that connects us.

I go wavy and color outside the lines, many nuns got very angry with me

"Still we cling to show our obsession for straight line This only enables us to make a short cut design " So true, Debasish Majumder.

Debasish, to borrow a line from you...Mystic expressions it makes with an amazing haste!

Thank you dear Debasish Majumder- you know very well this poem will please me. I referred to it in my comments on my buzz "why not move in a straight line" I enjoyed reading it and in particular your reference to waves. Shared
