Newtonian Sorrow

Newtonian Sorrow

A Poem by Doodley
"

Sonnet.

"
At pearl light from womb till Life's twilight gloam,
The heralded pinnacle did I seek,
Universal answers contained in tome,
I found upon a lonely mountain peak.

Soundless secrets whispered into eager ears,
Infused the tendrils of my wondrous mind,
As swollen eyes seduced of falling tears,
Belied the joyous knowledge I did find.

But, wisdom's words cannot be cast to wind,
Dispersed as worthless without solemn care,
Else in Creator's wrath she might rescind,
This knowledge she cloaks in rarefied air.

As seekers of secrets quest's do begin,
My Newtonian Sorrow breeds within.

Seeking wisdom by abandoning the normal life, setting off for the mountains, attaining knowledge and wisdom up there...The beauty of it all, the spellbounding view of the mountains, you captured it's magnificence very well here. Again, a wonderful poem!

Wonderful in words and detail about your subject.

There is a great truth in this sonnet. You did wonderfully at showing it in a creative and almost unearthly way. Immeasurably deep.

This is a Superb Sonnet, Sunbae :-)
Quest of knowledge is something very sublime. I read somewhere that knowledge oriented life is the best one we can have. Wisdom is a bliss in itself. Acquiring knowledge is never an easy thing. Once received life is filled with joy. After acquiring, if it is not conveyed to or shared with others, it becomes useless. And it should reach to a worthy person otherwise its value become worthless.The transmission of it from one to another is very important, then knowledge can also have a life.
Your pieces are always complete, Sunbae. From the birth to end, even in the shortest pieces you try to include every detail, which is splendid.
Fantastic imagery and rhyming :-)
100/100
PS: (One fine day, I will also write a sonnet..it's gonna take time)

To bring out this kind of thought so beautifully it needs skill of someone like you only, Doodley. What really struck me is the message it has brought.
Soundlessly secrets whispered into eager years, this verse made recall what they say about our sacred knowledge the Vedas. The knowledge always exists in the form of fine sound and it descends upon the deserved.
A write from different plane brought out in the constrained form ! Excellent.
Your titles are always like the icing on the cake. You really the blessed one Doodley. Thank you for writing this sonnet.
