The inevitable question

September 30, 2007

When I was five years old we used to live away from the main city towards the country side. Climbing trees, falling off from them and running all over the neighbors daffodils were the things me and my younger brother did best. Sometimes we would walk our dog and throw rocks at the ducks in […]

As in transit now,my soul,climbing with all the fear, the closeness they assured me about though never did i feel, tried as i did,the smoke, never did it clear, the nearer seemed further and the furthest seemed near.
