Destiny of balloons
is unknown,
mere slaves
of our desires
much like our hearts
Both pop
from or by
a little prick,
It is all the same
Oxygen inside
is not more than
lung size
it evaporates
we suffocate
Life ends on its own
Dying wish not known
Last breath, in solitary confined
Bed, all alone

      2. It is quite simple, some people are most expressive than others πŸ™‚ re your comment I was more taking about bright colours and the fact you liked that idea πŸ™‚ AB

  1. The balloons are a wonderful way to convey the unpredictability of life and the inevitability of our mortality. One minute you can be in the bright, colorful bustle of life and the next minute you could be gone from this world. We have such limited time, it makes me sad that so many of us have to put up with so much hardship, disappointment, and suffering in our lives.

    1. And then we rise from all the disappointment like Phoenix and light up the darkness around us with the brightest smile as if all such difficulties has not much influence and we ride on till it is our time!

        Your comment reminds me of some of the ideas discussed in Plato’s β€œAllegory of the Cave.” If I remember this work correctly, there is a realm of ideal forms that is the true reality, and what most of us see are shadows of those forms. Many of us make the mistake of believing that the shadows are the real (ideal) forms.

        Then there is the possibility of alternate or parallel universes where one thing may exist or one event may happen in one dimension but not in another. What could be real on one plane of existence may not be on another. πŸ™‚

      2. Thank you for your kind words, AB. πŸ™‚ I am not really a philosopher. I took a couple of philosophy courses when I was in college, and I am surprised that I still remember some of what I learned after all of these years (with a little help from some online review). However, I am fascinated by cosmology, especially mythological and metaphysical cosmology. I am impressed by some of the intricate systems people have developed to explain the origins and structure of the universe. Some of these systems are very inventive and ingenious.

        Writing has been an important part of my life, but I am not quite sure what to do with it. Maybe one day I will tell you more about my writing background. I don’t want to talk about it here.

  2. I meant to say in my last line that “We have such limited time here, and it makes me sad that so many of us have to put up with so much hardship, disappointment, and suffering in our lives.” I accidentally hit the “send” button too soon. πŸ™‚

      1. It is always my pleasure to converse with you Arlene, nowadays I am in the middle of finding something new and hence very much distracted from posting new things or responding (I am writing a lot without publishing it). It is a phase and hopefully will wither away πŸ™‚

      2. I enjoy talking to you too, but we can talk later if you need more time to work on some new writing. Writing takes time, and it is hard to write when you are distracted with too many things. I miss doing my artwork and would like to write those stories we talked about, but I am just too busy now with other things. I hope I can figure out a way to have more time to work on those creative projects.

        Good luck with your writing, and hopefully you will create something beautiful and interesting from this phase. πŸ™‚
