KAKADI-ARMAA (translating as "Octopus" in English; a favorite delicacy of many)
Just as the Octopus with its many arms/fingers represents diverse interest, encapsulates diverse backgrounds and reflects diversity, so also the soul that seeks to drown in the well of wisdom must radiate the diverse shades of life's lights.
I invite you to feast, line by line; word by word:...a truly delicious soup for the soul... Welcome& enjoy...
"Kakadi-Armaa" - [the Octopus]
If this world were a dungeon of fire, Coals will I be.
If everything turns cold as ice; the ice found on Iceland, Snow will I be.
If the mounts melt as thawed ice, and it all flowed as a river, Blood will I be.
If the seas drown into the deep, and dry out utterly, Wind I"ll be.
If images turn real, casting replica shadows, Mirror I'll be.
If night collapses into day, and the difference seems lost, Light rays I'll turn.
If the journey gets too harsh and hard; and, the ghosts of crushed lords hunt my forehead, The destination I'll turn.
If the stars refrain their constellations, and hinder the velocity of pretentious motion, Peacemaker I'll be.
If the mount of olympus gets ambushed, and zeus is cast in stone by hercules, Pan I'll be.
If i met Juliet, lovely and tender; yet, broken, betrothed and dependent, Then Romeo I'll turn.
If time met with her fate; and if clocks vanished in permanence
Then, what shall i be?
What shall i do?
What shall i have?
