The Way We Were


In the little that I have traveled in the United States, my mind has chosen the Adirondacks as the most loved and reminisced about place; starting somewhere near Syracuse, and going all the way north to Buffalo and Niagara Falls. Beautiful mountains, hills, and plenty of lakes. This picture was taken in 1972, on one of those lakes.

A beautiful picture. I love it.

Not too long ago I entertained a thought that if the glass of reflective property, including mirror, had not been invented there would be less of Narcissism, self-absorption, in the world. That was quickly negated by another thought that as long as there existed any reflective pool of water a Narcisssus with a death-wish will be born every minute.

I see here that the rose wanting to be the Narcissus,the flower, is alreday dying at the edges.

Dil ke arumaan "aayine" mein rahe gaye.....

My reply...

Ab dil hai na dil ke aarmaan hai
Bas main hun meri tanhaai hai
Sheeshe mein dekhkar
Sochta rahta hun
Akele Akele
Kahaan ja rahe ho
Dekh li teri khudaai
Bas mera dil bhar gaya

Aansuon mujh par hanso
Mere muqaddir par hanso

delicate as tissue
fragile as the beating heart
of a butterfly
it flagrantly displays itself
to every pollinator
who happens to stop by

Man In Nature

Earth is infinitesimally minuscule, its resources even smaller; humans are among the least of all. Yet we have taken everything as ours, to explore, consume, subsume, deprade. Even though we know that we will be destroyed along with our world, we have ensured that we cannot turn back.

In the Loop

All life is bound within a loop of certain fatality; only its time and manner are indeterminate.
