Moments & Moments

Atul Chandra Sarkar

Each coming moment
Is a mystery,
Each passing moment
Is a history.

What holds tomorrow?
Bliss pr sorrow?
Each moment shall enter
A cell of memory:
These buds, these fruits
Shall blossom and wither,
Each who is 'here'
Must go hither-thither;
No matter how much
You peruse every text,
No one can prophesy
What in the moment next?
Each coming moment
Something shall bring,
Each passing moment,
Shall tease and sting;
The sphere is spinning
On the finger of Time,
I came in some moment,
I'll go when needles chime.

Each passing moment
Is a history,
Each coming moment
Is a mystery?
