Writer

Most of his time went into writing
he looked at an object in different ways
and was always lost in a tangle of metaphors
like the electricity in the exhumed wires.

He took the safe path of non-judgment
he felt secure that way so that
there won't be that unexpected knock of protesters.

He wrote, as an observer from a distance
as an astronomer with a telescope
adjusting his focus now and then
and rarely going out of his room on the roof top.

'Going out of the room'- That is some metaphor! Worked well with me, and you have done a clever job, see, there are no protestors!

a picture is more than 1000 words..thats visualizing
and experience than seeing.
and transformation more than experiencing
such is upward ladder.

For we know in part and we prophesy in part. But when that which is perfect has come, then that which is in part will be done away.
When I was a child, I spoke as a child, I understood as a child, I thought as a child; but when I became a man, I put away childish things. For now we see in a mirror, dimly, but then face to face
