(Blue) Black Magic

i was looking at a blue-black thick blanket,
trimmed at the edges and curved like tree-tops,
pinned up to a light-blue display board.

and just when I took my eyes off,
flickers of pinkish white light
shimmered from the thick of the blanket
and showed me a few more hidden tree-tops.

soon, revelation came along;
they were the potential rain-bearing clouds,
waiting for the wind to unfurl its flourishes!

dust and truck

you ran down on me, and trashed me
like the dust underneath the wheels of a truck,

and i,

i went behind you,
gaining an ephemeral momentum,
like the same loose dust,
mindlessly rushing behind it.


nota bene:
my eyes saw the dust and
imagination created the rest

isn't it ironic?

After a very long time, it's lyrics time! It probably befits as a sequel to my last post. :-) I am not posting the entire lyrics here; instead, I am just quoting the ones that I thought were really the epitome of irony. I mean, if you are trying to explain the meaning of the word 'ironic', you would succeed if you just quote these.

"A traffic jam when you're already late
A no-smoking sign on your cigarette break
It's like ten thousand spoons when all you need is a knife
It's meeting the man of my dreams
And then meeting his beautiful wife
And isn't it ironic...dontcha think"


And, Alanis!! Ahh... she uses just the right intonation to express these ironies. Just amazing!! Absolutely amazing!

isn't it paradoxical?

isn't it paradoxical,

that

the clock's hands have to go on in circles,
for me to move ahead;

i have to smelt ore,
for iron to be robust;

i have to pluck the taut guitar strings
to relieve me of my tautness;

i have to dichotomize something
to identify the beautiful symmetry in it;

i have to imprison air,
for a balloon to soar high with freedom;

i have to bury a seed alive,
for a plant to come to life?

words

If you take it for granted that others know how much you appreciate them, they will probably think you take them for granted. Put thanks and appreciation into words.
