Man - the new God of Earth


Buildings towering

upon their shadows

Monsters rising

out of the earth's womb

Columns of iron

hugging each other

Mirrors kiss and gaze

the enigma of glass maze

Simple structures

forming complex creatures

Angles and arcs

by joints and sparks

Harmony of cement and steel

or the jungle of concrete

For no dust gathers on the glass

unless where man has broken earth

Fantastic. Once more Gonecase says so much in such few words. Hard hitting. Pic is so apt..

Loved these two lines:
"Mirrors kiss and gaze
the enigma of glass maze"

Thanks, am happy that you liked it. Most of us would feel the same, that's what our so called lifestyle has become !

I can't help but feel the base is still the earth for those concrete jungle, for those complex creatures.

So, what man has done? create it without base, if you can. hahaha

Just my two cents of bakar there, as usual. Nice post though, honestly.

Ohho, dhanya bhaag hamare jo aap padhare....hmmm, to aapko point ke hisab se aadmi ko god se demote karke demigod bana diya jaye, kiya ja sakta hai, no big deal,yahan ke hum sikandar, hehe..

Bhagwan mat bana mujhe:P

Gonecase said...

Arre not bhagwan literally but more off an idol, source of inspiration sorts :P

crasiezt said...

How does it happen that I become the source of inspiration for a lot of people??? LOL

Gonecase said...

Ab ye to talent hota hai apna apna :P

chacha said...

Kool, yup, thats the max man can fool himself of. If God exists, only God can be at its place, reason, thats too boring a job man will consider, at least I won't.

And bit of confused there, whose choke you were taking, chokemaster, with that "idol" dialog.

crasiezt said...
