Questions : Quatrain (Letters from the Soul #17)

Amaranthine questions are spread unevenly
In the enigmatic labyrinth of life;
They tease, mock, and laugh breezily
At the weary travelers trying to thrive. 

The sea waves question the azure sky
The earth questions the restless wanderers;
We flutter from flower to flower like a butterfly
The answers lie hidden in Nature's metaphors.

We are seekers, in search of answers
To the questions that lie on our path;
Life is a stage and we are the performers
Reveling in soul-searching on earth.

Note: This is a quatrain. A quatrain is a poem consisting of four lines of verse that follows a fixed rhyming pattern such as abab, aabb or abba. I used the rhyming pattern of abab in this quatrain poem. 


  1. Amazing poem, Purba. Very nicely you have worded it.

  2. Thanks to you, we are learning newer forms of poetry. It's amazing that there are so many forms and that they have a fixed pattern as well. Interesting and impressive.
