Soul sounds

I know no right or wrong,

I see no black or white,

What is dark and light, asks the quivering existing soul?

Charred tempestuous colour of experience coats it,

Embellishments carry no weight or value,

Soundless soul chants dulcet dribbles of astuteness,

Beseeching from lessons learnt,

The soul carries no judgement, it is no judge,

Emotions cradled in hands of mere mortals,

Like leaves swaying to poetic tunes.
