Tanka – Shadow & Light

 

Light teases its way

shadows illusionary

clash of eye and mind

a figment of fantasy

or concrete reality?

    Clash of eye and mind, wow.
    I think it’s both reality and fantasy
    I am not sure if I got it right, but it’s something like dreams which are made real

      Thank you Kurian! I liked the interpretation you gave. Yes, life too puts us in many such situations where there is a clash between the two. How we deal with it and what we choose to believe is entirely up to us!
