KALEIDOSCOPE - random thoughts



Rotating in, against the glass pane
Myriad cling-clangs
Coherent, holding to join
Real and reflections
Uniform patterns embroil
In a seamless submission
Focussed at the centre
To emanate, dissipate
Colourful refracting contours

In knowledge or 
blissful ignorance?
I wonder if I would know
Through the pierced hole
Circling motions continue
Jumping up and down a graph
Top to bottom to top again
Zigzag, meandering maze
Opens up symmetrical designs

Illusions of a wavering mind, perhaps
Tying up loose ends
Scooping on philosophy
Deciphering the exclamations
Popping here and there…Life!
Seeing end as a means to another end
Marginal utility spins a curve

A journey…
Wanting, craving, desiring, dreaming…
Till the strings are pulled
To stop, but not, just
Pause
Move on…
Carry on…

Make a full circle.

  11. Our journeys are a kaleidoscope of colors indeed.

    My favorite bit:
    "Illusions of a wavering mind, perhaps
    Tying up loose ends
    Scooping on philosophy
    Deciphering the exclamations"
