Now Go Create the ONE BIG FAT ANT

by Ashok Sharda

Bounds are things in space
And in time
Other than a thing called
The Omnipotent NOTHINGNESS

Relative are concepts to one
Or the other
Than the one we know as
The Omniscient ABSOLUTE

Ends all in this continuum
That has a beginning
But for the unbegun we term as
The omnipresent INFINITE

How do I confine the ONE
Boundless and unrelative
Into an Absolute Infinite Nothingness
Synonyms, if not in concept, in BEING

ANTS can go now and create the one
And the only ONE
That easily confines to their imagination


Author's Note: I was surprised when this poem appeared defying my mood. I wrote this note, to a dear friend, the very same moment, this piece appeared on paper.

I am sorry dear, this was never intended but I was so helpless. I just couldn't refuse my muse to enter my skull, who was knocking the threshold, waking me from a deep slumber. I had to respond to my beloved and let this LOGICAL poem write itself, obviously, using my writing tool. You are kind and large hearted and have always forgiven me for my drifts.

So, my dearest, forgive me for presenting this unintended poem for your perusal. I am not laughing hard. Hahaha Can you SEE the logic, dear? How can one confine nothingness into ABSOLUTE or INFINITE and/or, the other way round? They have to be synonyms in their being, from their unbeginings. Gods? Well, they can confine to our imaginations. Hahahah. Laugh Baby laugh. Ashok August 28th, 2005

is a poem inside a poem...and this explains my predicament (hahaha) with letting my muse in through the door and -the heck with me...

er, uhm, when I came in here to this little comment box, it was to let you know your poem fed my mind well today, thank you, Ashok...I will now settle into a contemplative trek thru the other side of this monitor.
Bless your pen!

I think this a poem came indeed from half wakefulness! LOL! It is logical if you assume that Nothingness is the only infinite! I much prefer the assumption that "God was in the beginning." Another thought provoking writing!

As is usually the case with some of your deeper pieces, think I'll need a couple of glasses of wine to "reopen" or "uncondition" my mind from the material/physical world to fully appreicate this diamond in the rough haha!
