Eternal learning door

Umesh is a freelance writer contributing his creative writings on varied subjects in various knowledge and educational sites in internet.

Preface

Pursuit for learning and acquiring knowledge is a continuous process in our lives. Some people have a strong desire for learning while in some it might be there in latent state not presenting it to outside world. Learning is the only thing which continuously changes our perspective of the world around us. It is not only the academic learning but learning in worldly matters is also something which equally matters.

Knowledge is generally compared with ocean and one can take as much learning from it as possible. This is a perpetual source of learning and enlightenment. One can have it as much as possible. There is no restraint whatsoever.

These ponderings about learning are presented in this poem.

Poll

Eternal learning door

Relentless pursuit,

For learning and more learning.

Endless efforts,

For acquiring and creating.

A wealth of knowledge,

Emanating through silhouettes.

There is no end,

To the learning acrobats.


The learning desires,

Galloping in the mind.

They are but not,

The worldly kinds.

The honest pursuit,

Asking for more and more.

I am still searching,

The eternal learning door.

I love that I am still learning new things every day.

They say you can not teach an old dog new tricks...but I beg to differ.

The world is full of possibilities.

Sankhajit Bhattacharjee from MILWAUKEE on December 05, 2020:

lovely piece to read

MG Singh emge from Singapore on December 05, 2020:

This is a nice article. Learning process never stops. I remember reading that Acharya Vinoba Bhave started learning Japanese at the age of 70.

Denise McGill from Fresno CA on December 05, 2020:

I love that we don't have to know everything as long as we know where to look for the answers. Someone else has probably written about it or researched it before me. In that way, I can learn new things by standing on the shoulders of those who learned before me.

Blessings,

Denise

There is no end to learning. It may be formal education or life lessons we learn, whether intended or by chance.

I love this quote,

Live as if you were to die tomorrow. Learn as if you were to live forever.”

Your poem is good.

We can all learn and should be open to it everyday.
