mrigtrishna / mirage


dhoop ke peeche bhagta main
aur badal mere peeche
jeevan
ek mrigtrishna hi to hai
jeevan ki

me, running after sunshine
and the clouds chasing behind
isn't life
all but a mirage
of life

"Our truest life is when we are in dreams awake." / Henry David Thoreau

soooooooooo strange... ealier this morning i had this quote by Thoreau (one i really love!) on my igoogle... many forms and manifestations were shaping in my head as i was writing here and there and as i was getting closer and closer to its core...
then
all of sudden, your new post popped up in my Reader... and geez... unbelievable...

very very beautiful... and true...

mirages and dreams have always had a positive role in my life... without them we never get any close to the truth... contrary to what people might believe... (that they mislead us)...

love the way you change your header's pictre and words...
it seems as if we are looking at a well cut jewel... and each time light is cast from a new angle...
thanks...

How do we know said...

it is where it is not,
it will be where u know it not,
it is because you are,
it must die if you are not.
it will re form,
when someone like you,
will ask it to re perform.

human: i love this quote. and i hope to read more of thoreau in my american studies this year :)
mirages and dreams are at the same time similar as well as opposites for me. that's why the present theme.
of course, there is one more layer, that dee's blog is titled mirages and mine dreams.
actually this one week is going to decide a lot of things for my future career and consequently for both of us, and that is why this apprehension and struggle.
yes, i too like changing my header pic and color combination as per the moods and feelings i'm going through at the moment. am glad u liked them too.
and finally, thanks a ton for all ur comments. even when i coudn't reach out to ur blog, u still give me so much of of ur precious time and share ur heart with me. am truly grateful to u. thanks again.

howdy: u must b joking :) this seemed so un-howdy like thing to say! lol. thanks anyways. love ya :) and yes, i think u'll see the response for ur 'neelkanth' in a few days time.

OM: in all ways, it is actually u that rock. m so, so, so waiting for the 'mirage'. love u lots n lots n lots.

I chase the sunshine/ clouds following suit/ Life is but a mirage of itself.

So true
What we so wish to believe
Might be only an illusion...

adi said...

"If I do not get what I wanted that means something better is waiting for me."
