INSATIABLE THIRST

a poem by P.K.N. Panicker, India

Knock at the door;
She who holds the keys
obliges not easily
tempting to knock and knock,
challenging to knock differently;
And when she opens one
closes the one behind
making all my knowledge
weak and transitory.

Place a step forward;
Every step forward in some way
negates an earlier one
as Newton of Aristotle
as Einstein of Newton;
Every knowledge barrier
on penetration throws up
unanswered questions many
leaving me in the dark.

An expanding universe
stretching boundaries to infinity
hides within the nucleus
shrinking to infinitesimal
and I grope in between
the macro and the nano
to expand knowledge horizons
leaving doubts none,
waiting
for the ultimate revelation.
