(The Poet's Biography in 2000)


"Lost At Sea"


Constant as ever was the pole-star

As with confidence I looked and wondered

At how well I fared on life’s wheel of karma.

And I thought that constant too was my progress.

Little did I know that mine was the fate

Of the thirsty lonely sailor in his shell

Miserably lost in an interminable sea; alone

But for the daily sun and the constant pole-star.

The miles I covered were but the leagues

He rowed around a single point.

And I wept bitter tears of desperate sorrow

As the light of dawn revealed that the seeming end

Was but the stark beginning.
