A promise unfulfilled
A remembrance unwatched
Like a silent wooden barn
With no herds returning soon
Modernity screams in the concrete jungle
I implant a thought about thinking and remember that
Somebody had whispered that thoughts are trivial.
What would a solitary life do?
Think and make physical touch upon things
Like a flexible doctrine of some philosophy
That never leaves you alone.
A joyful river flows in symphony
Yet flowing with the smile
Shining recently on the face of time.
