On life and its vagaries


with 17 comments

In the grip of emotions,

We see ourselves,

In the nude-

In the real

In a mass frenzy,

We watch annihilations,

In the raw-

Yet in the reflexive

In thought,

There are pitfalls,

All Initiated-

From that is without

Yet in all these actions,

Who instigates,

Who directs……..!

And why this search for sense……

    • Haha I like that! You are alright I hope?
      Don’t work yourself to death. It rarely pays
      to be altruistic in our world , or does it?

      Good souls are rare, may the great spirit
      Keep you in good health and spirits! 🙂

      • and you are always very welcome 😉
        also, just to let you know that you’re one of my three picks for the spotlight award 😀

        check it out:


        Well, glitteringsoot, I am honored, what’s happening to me, I am receiving so many awards these days! But the sad thing is, I will have to keep it in hold for the time being, for I already have two other awards pending which I should do something about. So I can only accept it in my heart with gratitude now. I will honor it after I do the honor to the other two. Hope your kind heart would not take it amiss!
