The cloud eclipses the mighty sun
by Ratneswar Brahmachari
The rock hides the fountain,
The soothing green covers the barren
The mask - the face.
Behold, the education conceals the savagery inside
Words conceals the truth,
The oath -the betrayal.
Dye enbalms the rust
Drinking only to make thirst asleep
Yet we must...
Day harbours the night, dark and deep and rest and peace.
The shell rears up the pearl
And kernel the fruits
Illusion directs the way toward absolute truth
Only wisdom can catch!
