fakeer


he was a strange man,
they recall
he laughed, when somebody died
or cried at a birth,
and said our lives are
but shadows and mirth

hmmm,
detachment or attachment to that supreme knowledge that he cant let go of even in this mortal world.
whos to decide is it detachment at all?

Shadows and mirth
No length
No girth
As a wish
And a dream
Do we come
To this Earth

Stuck in time
But not in space
We come
So very briefly
To this place

Thank you Fakeer

reminds me of a (mentally retarded) man i once met. sometimes i think the so-called disabled/retarded are wiser than the rest of us.
