Another Superman

Sitting on the terrace, watching the blonde sun dive,

Into the dingy pool of the city,

I wait for my superpower to arrive,

Whiling the time with a cup of tea.


To zip into the past, uproot the weeds of pain,

The brambles that choke my creative thoughts,

To sow the seeds of a luxuriant, noble forest

Burgeoning in the plains of my present mind;


Or flash into the spectacular future,

To build the gleaming cities of gold,

With beautiful, mysterious women sunbathing

In dark glasses on the soft beach sand.


I wait with grim brow, marshaling my powers,

Willing them to grow, intent and furious,

While the laughing blonde Sun pirouetted through the air,

Flirting in the arms of the humming breeze,


The unthinking birds flew back to their homes,

While the greying clouds slumbered to rest;

And all the while it was just stupid me,

Sinking in my past, and leaping to my future.

I have always been a great believer. I've flitted from one belief to another, from religion to atheism and from one philosophy to another, until I finally settled on J. Krishnamurti whose philosophy is that there is no philosophy. So now I firmly believe that there is nothing to believe. Now such a belief would, I believe, have been considered dangerous to society if the authorities had believed me to be of any consequence. No man of consequence they believe would waste his time on the pursuit of blogging!

  1. Sir! I like all your poems here, including this one. Best lines like every other poem have to be the last ones! 🙂

    Doctoratlarge: Thank you. I do believe that the last lines of a poem are what stay with the reader the longest

  2. Yes Sir! Plus they are most effortless lines! P.S. Im no poet! 😀
