The Magic Cube

Life is a cube of intriguing puzzles

splashed with vibrant colours and weird patterns.

Sometimes its winding lanes tend to hustle

for unaware of what lies at each turn.

Either you find it as roads of stumbles

or little picturesque pieces of maze.

Sometimes it is a jumble of pebbles

or a riddle that will tease and amaze.

As the paths assemble and colours merge,

life will sparkle with a new dimension.

New layers of designs will soon emerge,

and solve your ever mysterious questions.

Let the cube of life juggle in your hand-

time will side with only those who take a stand.

    The poet uses the vivid and colourful extended metaphor of a magic cube to describe the quality and texture of the phenomenon we call Life.

    It is interesting to note that the poet chose the shape of a cube to represent life and it’s puzzles, reminding one of Rubik’s cube and how ‘experience’ teaches how to ‘approach’ and ‘organize’ the ‘jumbled’ cube with ease. Compelling analogy!
