How will an eagle soar?
When it awaits the north wind to pillar
Mount in space with conserving wings
To arrive it’s pre-destined venue
Patience is a virtue
How will the lion prey and feed?
When it ambushes the meat of the field
Sprint beyond measures with muscular limbs
To prey living being for well being
Wisdom the principal thing
How will the ant shelter?
When it digs deep beyond limiting fetter
Together they pick soil particles to gather
To attain food, welfare and probably water
Foreseeing is an intellectual banner for answer
How will I breed ideas from patient incubation
When I sit tight for utopia imagination
Focus in tranquility and poetic collation
To poetic rhymes and stunning observation
Talent is tautologically a marvelous wonder—–
