A journey through civilizations

It never takes me 
More than a wink of an eye 
To travel from the Levant people 
To the people of Minoa   
Via yellow river, Norte Chico 
Egypt, Harappa and Mesopotamia 

I’d seen enough falls and rises 
Like the ocean’s weaves 
Embedded with few moment’s high tides  
And receding low ebbs 

While living in houses of Uruk and Memphis
I encountered with enough love and hate 
To satisfy their basic instincts 
Some went too low, some were too great
To preserve human development and progress.

In the course of my travelling 
Through the great river Nile
Among the valleys of Euphrates and Tigris 
I’d seen wonderful minds 
In heaps of war, conspiracy, deception and lies 

With multiple injuries 
When I laid in the trenches of lust and greed 
In the battle fields of Polynesia 
I’d seen the indomitable human spirit 
How it withheld  the cruelties of Athenians and Spartans 
And pushed forward  the  great human civilization 

………………to  be continued ……..
