The Magistrate - ZorbaBooks

The Magistrate

Stone stands reckless

with a beam of arrogance within;

it boasts about its strength

to the air, 

it brags about its weight

to the sky. 

Perhaps, the universe has its own way… 

its entities are in love with the sea

which holds a great depth reticently, 

it dedicates itself to nature’s duty;

slow and steady it knows the art

of winning hearts. 

Haughty stone

challenges its flow;

the sea accepts it with a smile…

it oozes through the stone

inside out and makes

the stone humble. 

Eventually, the stone learns

real strength

lies in service to universe.
