All journeys end.

A tree makes its journey
To shed its leaves and pass away,
While getting off at a station
Is the end of that journey.

One day our journey
Through life too would end
When we would be called
To shed our bags and baggage
And reach our final home.

There is no knowing
When the call would be made
And nothing would protect
From being called;
The ticket will be issued.

All your attempts,
At self- preservation
Will matter naught
‘Cause
Death keeps no record of those.

You’ll be just a memory
Framed on a wall
For those, through whom,
You hoped you could continue
Once you are gone.

Given life, perhaps,
Through their thoughts
Yet, not able to be brought back
Even to know
You are being thought!

All your schemes
At perpetuation
Will be derailed at the end
Know this
And plan well
For the journey ahead

Life would end
A deception
Not having learnt what it meant
Disillusioned,
Yet
Another journey begun,
The illusion continues…….

“To those who have already made the journey”

What inspires me is the feeling or emotion we are able to capture and convey either through words, an image, or both.The ‘pictures’ we evoke more than the seen. They would better communicate who, what, or where I am now. It is through them that we are ultimately going to “see’ each other. It is through them that we may connect. I look forward to the connection.

  • Thank you again Anna!! The little house is a small railway station. “My concept” of the final journey. LOL!! I like that interpretation very much!! The poem, for the most part, was inspired by this capture. :) Appreciate very much your thoughts again Anna!!

    Your poetry is so beautiful and profound, Ramesh, and this is the perfect image to take one on one’s journey.

  • Thank you so much Gena!! It is always good to get some feed back on my writing, as a good part of my own journey is made through them.

    Beautiful image with amazing color! Yes, we are all travelers and our present journey is here on Earth, but I watched a few TV science shows about research into the soul last weekend, and thought of you. Because I do believe the soul goes on to the next journey and the next after that, I believe I’ll still be me and I’ll have to live again because I’m not ‘perfected’ yet. I believe in karma. Some day we’ll know who was right, but for now here on Earth this beautiful scenery may distract us and bind us even further to this planet. ??
