reflection of life
on the canvas of existence,
on the mirror of other's perspective
is different from contours of reality.
blurred images shimmering on
ripples of consciousness,
are tapestries of impressions woven
on looms of preconceived notions~
a diaphanous brocade of opinions,
simulating gossamer butterfly wings
fluttering in fragrant draught
of spring in resplendent bloom~

in the arid air roasted into sultry
by the blazing sun, blazing sands
as volatile dreams of verdure oases,
evanesced by opaque night of
in the somber labyrinths of nocturne
scattered in smoldering embers of
and presided by an amber chandelier
all silhouettes are swallowed
just as spirits ascending heights of
are splattered in shades of reality
their images in others eyes long
