in my imagination

lose myself
in my own conception

    birthing a new reality
    from my own conception
    I awaken
    from my imagination

    De-Centred
    I come alive
    when you observe me;
    partake in my creation.
    To know me, you
    create me by your own thoughts.
    I am, what you want me to BE.

  4. Sir,
    Its like the seed planted in soil to grow another new sapling/plant/tree, which loses its original form to grow bigger and better than its predecessor only because this time the water(Paani) and the soil was different. May be the gardener this time was more caring.

    the bane of life? being in love/fascinated with oneself?

    and yet…
    in my breath…
    I am at one…
    with infinity…
    my home…
    calling me…
    to rest…

    When you lose yourself in your own conception, you should concieve yourself again in your imagination. 🙂

    The last two lines, yes; envy the so blessed.
    The first two?
    Imagination far far beyond man’s grasp.

    cool poem 🙂

    But in this
    losing and finding
    is the whole
    enjoyment of life
    You concieve
    you enter
    you lose
    you enjoy totally
    when you lose totally
    and then bang
    you are again back
    to your original state
    of total boredom
    or as some would say
    sat chit ananda lol

    SK : You are a gr8 film-maker. We request you to make a quick 45 secs commercial… educating the Indian Voter… to come out and vote. Underline the fact that the Election Day is not the day to sleep or wash clothes or watch a movie. It is a day to do a most sacred duty. You can make this quickie ad., for free. This is part of your service to India, meaningful democracy and India. We want you to contribute some of your time and world-class talent…
    45 sec ads made by Shekhar Kapur educating Indians… on meaningful democracy. Explaining to Indians in simple words., the fine line.. and difference between a mobocracy and a democracy… explaining to Indians what happens when nations abandon their social responsibility… Iraqis did it during 30 years of Saddam… and look what happened. We have to Keep India clean from barbaric animals wearing turbans of different colours. Some safforn.. some green.. pretending to be our protectors. God save India from its fake-protectors and frauds. Educate Indians., and leave the rest to their destiny. There is a limit one can go to., but yes.. we must stand up and say… what we want to say.. .like Nandita Das… like Mallika Sarabhai.. .stand up and face evil… and say what must be said. Stand up for truth !

    warm regards
