King I was

Had been to an astrologer To know about my future But he got hooked up on my past King I was, he said with reverence Reveled in all materialistic pleasures Have enjoyed life to fullest I reflected awhile Yeah, have no temporal cravings Feel no sense of deprivation I gave a consenting nod He added, I was known for justice Subject hailed impartiality I reflected awhile Yeah, am living by hardcore honesty Have never indulged in manipulation I gave a consenting nod He went on, said I was good leader Subject appreciated decisions I reflected awhile Yeah, am at top executive position Am known for judicious approach I gave a consenting nod He went on, said I was spiritual Respected divine Values I reflected awhile Yeah, mysticism fascinates me Working on mind-body-soul quest I gave consenting nod Forgot questions on future Felt no need to know future Thought foundation is great Why worry about superstructure Signed off as a King, astrologer saluting ----------------------------------------------------- (c) Hitendra Mehta From : India. English not primary language The prediction of past life is real. Have made the narration dramatic for poetic effect. ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Entry for Members Contest Sponsorer : Carolyn Devonshire Contest Name : Past Lives

Hi Hitendra, congratulations on a well-deserved win! This is such a clever powerful write that I enjoyed reading it immensely. Even though English is not your first language, you expressed yourself excellently! Pandita.
