NOW

Now- A fragment in time
A dew on a leaf
A fleeting moment
Soon to be, the past..

An invincible truth-
An invariant lie-
A word, sans meaning
Yet, pregnant with space..

Now, is the star
Now is this sky
Now- is smile
Rest is, but lie!

Now, is happiness
Now is the sorrow
Now, is this life
To be lived, tomorrow...

An invincible truth-

Now, is infinite
Now, is fleeting
Says Mr. Einstein, but
I keep wondering...

wow matangini....its well written... simple and fantastic ....keep writing!!


Now is slipping into past,
Now is a bag of opportunity,
How to invest is an individual's task,
Well invested it pays like money,
But it's a simple yet rare art!!

stark everlasting truth, written in simple words. n the truth about 'now' is always piercing, isn't it? nevertheless, i must say, i love the way you've carved with words, the moment with such lightness n realization.

Srividya said...
