Mystery On A Wax Plateau

A tadpole balancing on head
teaches 'sheershasana'posture
a slave girl starts dancing
in the courtyard of bandits
thirsty lips, before the kiss
sets trap for another prey
a spearhead cleaves darkness
and probe the wound for secrets
after this night what will remain?
anthills of wax and mysteries...

All moments are precious.Only thing is that we should know the secret codes to unlock them.
"real" comes out and takes me "in "to watch an absurd opera full of mysteries...
the "real thing"acts like a front entrance leading to an opera hall..the show happens inside..
Emotions are real,but the factors triggering them need not be real..

A wax crater inspired me..
the memory of a flame nomore..
the inevetable death
and a tragedy called life...

I got the concluding part...but dint find the connection with the starting lines...

And also whats the link with my profile pic ?!

About the what will remain afer the night thingie that you talkin about ?

Elaborate, couldja ?

aria said...

unlike those who appear howling blind and bare... the ones wrapped in mystery who stage a sight to behold .. leave many visions behind.. the concluding lines would linger ..

@cindrella
i thought it was a burning candle in your profile...
i love to call this a yo-yo..like the old yo-yo balls which will come back to us again and again....

i wanted to leave " real things" and " real connections" behind and enter into a platonic plane where these abstract elements from our own meditating mind will define the rules of that world...

i sensed a strange mystic yet sad story which cannot be explained after seeing a "wax crater" in the morning..
About the first line..
it is the sign post..
sheershasana..upside down..
different peels of the same onion..
thank you...

Solitaire said...

I do not know what you were thinking about when you wrote this but when I read this, a prostitute came to mind!

RiverSoul said...

Truly makes me think in more ways than one...
Very deep analysis. Kudos to you.:)
Waiting for your nxt work.:)
Forgive my bluntness, but the first thing that came to my mind was not a very noble thought.;)
Anyways, my doubts are cleared:)

@macadamia
thank you..
@Polona
all beings, living or non living have to live a 'life'!
@Solitaire
nice read!
But it was a candle.
i was who tried to get rid of my mind..
stare at a candle..
it will start the opera for you..
Thank you..

MAN IN PAINTING said...

@riversoul
it is beyond my control..
i beleive a cndle flame is one of the best gurus...
who can teach you anything..
but we have to be good students..
after wiping the image throw the tissue away!
dear..
it is another way of throwing our mind away!
take care..

Kulpreet said...

YOU KNOW WHAT: Your peom got me laughing.
Honestly, you have a unique take on things. Not many can think so off the track. I guess, you are the one in the manking, if you try hard enough.

MAN IN PAINTING said...

@ayushi...
lol..
strange..that was a good yo-yo..
so many different versions..
each person can have his/her own yo-yos
for me it was a "full life"
a flame full of light!
thanks for the read.
