Transient Joy

Transient Joy

Amidst the festivities of a grandiose affair,
My harried mind hesitates, a question irks,
Debauchery indulge, why on finery I splurge?
When in a day, this wedding extravagance will disperse?

Answers, my mind, by posing a question new,
If Sun will soon blanch, all colours and hues,
Why sagacious, all-knowing, Nature celebrates?
If Summer supersedes, why Spring fests in her prismatic best?

Rationale one more, I surf in waters deep,
Why, the swelling sea, ostentatiously seeks?
The waxing moon, it’s love, it surges to please,
All-knowing, judicious, its idol would be soon, waning free.

Life a celebration, joyously spent,
Events and occasions, all memories cement,
With zeal, exult, crown each moment so rare,
Is it not, what the all-knowing, Nature suggests?
