Poem

Surrounded by students with faraway looks
“Don’t fear the unknown” the teacher said
It is a place of discovery
With comfort, you get complacent
With encounter, you approach celestial spheres

Abstract makes you think
Mystery makes you dream
Like colors added to a grey winter sky
They create spring in the middle of a desert

Hundred years later, the pupils become gurus
Teaching their grandparents what heaven’s like
Years of searching
A minute of enlightenment
A cycle of life, a rhythm never-ending
