The Missionary


I see that day, faintly
yet clear enough. To witness,
the magic, the chasm.
Sun reflected in the window,
I was sitting beside.
Wind gently blew harmonics,
in my head and the ice-
clinked, the juice waved.

A mellow voice called,
"Hail oh mortal,
see- thine ingress is blessed!"
Wind startled, so did I.
Moved to the door.

"Almighty hath shred the share,
of his grace, unto you.
Thou been blessed."

Took a coin, the man in green,
from my palm; ran it over-
the foliage.
Freeing the fist,
his eyes shone-brighter.
He held me a pendant,
of blessing, of success.

And today, I stand,
stranded in life - holding
my fate, the metal, the pendant.
For it was not the riches he offered,
what he opened, is now
called-
The Pandora's box.

Indeed it will keep me busy. There are events in everybody's life that change the course of flow of things. Maybe practical, or hypothetical.
And so do the things change..
