The Moments That Lost Nothing

children flying kites

Those poor moments rich in nothing,

Like beggars with their heads unthatched,

The sun laughing on their bare heads,

The breeze brushing their sooty cheeks,

Palms crossed not by fate, but sharp kite strings.

Foolish, stupid, wasteful, purposeless moments,

Valuing nothing, wallowing in nothing


Thankfully, these beggars beget kings:

Moments rich, packed with opulent bits

of experience, adages, morals, wisdom;

Safe, solid, learned, brooding moments;

Hunched over books, screens, tablets;

Untouched by the catarrhal wind,

Unbrushed by the stroking sun,

Packed like a refugee train from life,

Rich in all, except nothing

I have always been a great believer. I've flitted from one belief to another, from religion to atheism and from one philosophy to another, until I finally settled on J. Krishnamurti whose philosophy is that there is no philosophy. So now I firmly believe that there is nothing to believe. Now such a belief would, I believe, have been considered dangerous to society if the authorities had believed me to be of any consequence. No man of consequence they believe would waste his time on the pursuit of blogging!
