There is only life!

There are bad days.
There are good days.

After typing ,I looked out of the window and saw a flower.
That flower without a name taught me the following lines

There are no days,
sun makes us think so
There is only life,
undivided by days and nights.

Lovely !!. . .

Awesome poem and how true ,

It is quite a thought to come up with , even the very concept of a day around which all our life seems to revolve around is an illusion !

descrying the shadows said...

ha ha .. as usual .. brilliant .. :)
reminds me of what the turtle says in Kung fu panda
"there is only news. there is no good news or bad news "
so true with life as welll... though never thought of it tht way before

Vinz aka Vinu said...

something different...

liked the concept..!!

Mampi said...

does it automatically mean there is no death either? Only terrorism makes us think so?
Somehow I m very sad, very deeply upset. I know everybody is.

Rajesh said...

Wow!!!! That was too good...simple but made me think...gr8...kudos!!!

Rakesh said...

hey very true ya...good days and bad days are a part and parcel of everyone's life...

just coz we have bad days we understand the imp of good ones...or i guess we would have the same respect

Akshaya Kamalnath said...

Here comes MIP the modern day Socrates and makes his statement...maybe years from now, that'll be the scientific fact.

LOL yup its one way of seeing things, and a totally novel one. But as long as I can say, hope tomorrow will be a beter day and go to bed, the concept of 'days'is doing me good.

As always, a great read.

descrying the shadows said...

Because it is a bad time we should be careful to become more happy..The only way to fight terrorism is "not to get terrorised" by anything...

MAN IN PAINTING said...

@descrying...
LOL
the greatest laughing curve happens with the next dialogue..
turtle:"there are no good or bad news"

Master Chi Fu:"Tylog is coming back"
Turtle: (GULP!)" THEN it is BAD news "
i just loved the expressions...
Great movie..

Devika said...

'There is only life' -- The more I look at 'Life' itself, it seems so transitory, so illusory, tragic...yet so alluring!

Thanks MIP for making take a look..I kind of feel a new life starting all over again...Thanks!

@aria
true..
are we all fully aware of everything including ourselves..?
we live intoxicated lives..
either through entertainment or through other techniques, we love to forget ourselves..

MIP

MAN IN PAINTING said...

@ani
yes
that is the only truth..
all other illusions arise from a tiny drop of life..

Sheetal Sukhija said...

Reminds me of a poem we had in college. The vagueness of ur piece adds brilliance to the form in which u've moulded it

Devika said...

MIP:

Tara said...

Wow MIP!!! Brilliance at its best! Just too good! It's such a beautiful thought to ponder over! Wow!!

Keshi said...

wow too beautiful!

this is exactly wut I feel when I observe nature...they all seemed so satisfied with the life they hv...with a lil help from sun n rain, they bloom beautifully.

we humans seem to be the ones who dunno how to live for TODAY.

Keshi.

Lena said...

Anu said...

Usha Pisharody said...

Time and space; Time and timelessness, in the seamlessness of existence...

Just to be able to have caught the essence of its all in this simple and profound verse, is wonderful dexterity! Both of thought and expression:)
Kudos!

Superb!

Swayam said...

Priya said...

tunafish said...

There is not even life my dear...it is all just eternal time divided by many lives, loves and people... I always wanted a time machine and this makes me want it even more...

Rushabhh Gandhi said...

Descriptive with very less words is your style...isnt it..???

Salil said...

Hi MIP,
Interesting thought.
Reminds me of the quote: 'Put your hand on a hot stove for a minute, and it seems like an hour. Sit
with a pretty girl for an hour, and it seems like a minute.'
Cheers,
Salil
