The Time Art

The Time Art

Like a bedlamite stared I
At the amazing apparition
Of an art on the yellow wall
Behind the TV stand, today.

The TIME, like a parasite
Eating my golden canvas
Upon which the prescient sun
Sprayed its gold tint amply

The quaint deified art of
The sleight of a hand
Leaving a white pattern
In such a vivid effusion

Still on the shoal, an abecedarian,
I left open-mouthed beholding
The aggressively zealous deed.
Is it a guerdon for TIME?

The exquisite pattern
Matchless imperceptible
Am I stuck in such a maze!
Leading by a hand of haze?

(golden canvas – life like a pattern on a canvas drawn by time, prescient sun – the source)

(Today I noticed a white brilliant pattern on the yellow painted wall behind our TV stand. The pattern is impossible to trace. The fun is that it is the work of some ants, amazing isn’t it? See the picture. It forced me to think life is like this – such a pattern drawn by the hand of time on a canvas. What/how the pattern is – always unique and matchless for one.)
