limitless space

I see bridges and dams
the ones we create in our mind
had it been reflected in the sky
I would have asked the clouds 
to gift it to me
but the foam you see here
is not real
the nearly blue colour
makes it appear like a sky on earth
but the vastness of it can't be contained
although we can the contain the Universe
within our mind, 
where the miniscule space becomes limitless

"someone please let me know,
who poured liquid glass into water?"

Almost overwhelming to think of the space of the world..the sky and the water..maybe we created bridges, dams and water to try and understand..and control such vastness..as inspired as ever..Jae

Beautiful, I really enjoyed this. :-)

Gautami,

Your economy with words impresses me. This could be a comment on an art work, or on art as an expression of mental creation, or on the relative inadequacy of (even) beautiful, accidental nature.

I like the thought that the bridges and dams...we creat in our mind...reflected in the sky. I like your poem today.

Thanks Gautami for constant delight..I am thinking on the question ..perhaps poured by the one who created them both...

Again, able nature- and cosmic-centric work. Nailed it. =)

Sometimes the vast seems inexplicable and sometimes the minuscule but it is the creativity of our mind that makes us wonder. A great post to ponder on.

I love the idea of limitless connected with our minds and the flow of liquid glass at the end.

This is so eloquent. I especially love "the nearly blue colour makes it appear like a sky on earth". What gorgeous imagery!
