Time: Untimed

  • abhishek kapahi
    abhishek kapahi
    A tingle of curiosity in his head
    A ray of hope in the heart
    in search of some answers he headed out
    little he knew this was just the start

  • Vishaka Thamilalagan
    Vishaka Thamilalagan
    A tickle in a feet ;fickle in his mind
    soaring to a height;finding a way to fight
    taking his combat with a firm fact
    finding a way up so that not to go down
    Feathers Feathers
  • abhishek kapahi
    abhishek kapahi
    With a billion questions he attacked every soul
    what? when? who? and why?
    he found no answers only more questions
    now he wonders where do the answers lie?

  • Vishaka Thamilalagan
    Vishaka Thamilalagan
    Earth  so wide with people's pride
    round round round,round is the earth 
    nowhere else to go out of this hearth 
    knowing that always answers would be lying here ;  but still wondering where ?

  • abhishek kapahi
    abhishek kapahi
    after a billion question and answers nill
    he decided to give up his quest
    he flashed back on his journey and everything became still
    and in that fine moment he found himself at rest

Time: 1 day

  • Supriya Madangarli
    Supriya Madangarli
    six sides to roll with
    who chose to number fate
    when the die was cast?

  • Harish Shankaran
    Harish Shankaran
    from naught unto nothing 
    who conceived time eternal
     a constant, yet slow and fast?
    Feathers Feathers
    4
  • Supriya Madangarli
    Supriya Madangarli
    in a warp? on a wave?
    how did they carve us
    into this nebulous space?
    Feathers Feathers
    5
  • Harish Shankaran
    Harish Shankaran
    part of a plan or a plot? 
    Or an 'atoms + glue' experiment 
    of a force without a face?
    Feathers Feathers
    3
  • Supriya Madangarli
    Supriya Madangarli
    who wrought these shapless forms,
    wrote myth into idea 
    and created absolutes?
    Feathers Feathers
  • Harish Shankaran
    Harish Shankaran
    and then left us to make sense of   
    the inexplicable indefinites
    and irrefutable resolutes?
    Feathers Feathers

  • Supriya Madangarli
    Supriya Madangarli
    do we fade to black
    or must the show go on
    condemned to earth in eternal encores?
    Feathers Feathers
    4
  • Harish Shankaran
    Harish Shankaran
    do we simply let it be
    or gauge this existence
    cast in rituals, routine and mathematical scores?
    Feathers Feathers
    4
  • Supriya Madangarli
    Supriya Madangarli
    is there a us and them,
    or did some of us cast life
    unto the sum of them?
    Feathers Feathers
  • Harish Shankaran
    Harish Shankaran
    Are we just the seeds?
    Or are we the complete works -
     the roots, the leaves, the flowers, the stem?
    Feathers Feathers
    6
  • Supriya Madangarli
    Supriya Madangarli
    where are the answers kept?
    in the musty hallowed minds of science
    or the rigid sacred vortex of religions?
    Feathers Feathers
    5
  • Harish Shankaran
    Harish Shankaran
    free like music in the air?
    or controlled, layered and submerged
    unto the darkest depths of divine legions?
    Feathers Feathers
    3
  • Supriya Madangarli
    Supriya Madangarli
    are they cast in doubt
    entombed in a shroud of fear
    or are they a scream, a sea of fists in the air?
    Feathers Feathers
    3
  • Harish Shankaran
    Harish Shankaran
    perhaps it is in the search,
    never about the answers derived;
    secrets living forever, in the stars at which we stare.
    Feathers Feathers

  • Supriya Madangarli
    Supriya Madangarli
    entangled in the storms ofdoubt
    would this siren song of quest
    lead us into the death of reason?
    Feathers Feathers
  • Harish Shankaran
    Harish Shankaran
    a 360 degree churn to convictions?
    pardigm shifts? intellectual drifts?
    perceptions changing like the turn of a season?
    Feathers Feathers

  • Supriya Madangarli
    Supriya Madangarli
    or should I wave by
    the straws of curiosity
    and drown in life languid?
    Feathers Feathers
    1
  • Harish Shankaran
    Harish Shankaran
    what if we weren't human?
    would the living others spend
     lifetimes taming reason, as we did?
    Feathers Feathers
    1
  • Supriya Madangarli
    Supriya Madangarli
    would we live by the primal instinct
    eat, fight, procreate
    to survive, to subsist?
    Feathers Feathers
  • Harish Shankaran
    Harish Shankaran
    should we forever question the code
    wander, explore, deviate 
    never to cease and desist?
    Feathers Feathers
    1
  • Supriya Madangarli
    Supriya Madangarli
    Or do we defer to faith
    seek to yield, strive to submit 
    to almighty fate, kneel?
    Feathers Feathers
    2
  • Harish Shankaran
    Harish Shankaran
    and what if our myriad questions,
    come a day, find answers?
    how would we feel? how would we deal?
    Feathers Feathers

  • Supriya Madangarli
    Supriya Madangarli
    If the athiest has to believe, would it be a relief?
    if the devout has to deny, would it be a judas cry?
    if the agnost has the proof, which side would loose?
