Everyday musings ….Life as I see it…….my space, my reflections and thoughts !!
Life’s journey beckons
wandering soul loses way
footprints in the sands of time
define man’s impermanence

Impermanence hides beauty.
This is exactly how life is at so many instances. You’ve described it perfectly with such beauty and poignance. Wow! ❤️
Thanks a lot Rishika ♥️
Well said the only permanence in life is its glaring impermanence .
True! Thanks Veena!

The truth and the last two lines are love.
Thank you Kritika. Good to see you after long!
So true Radhika, perfect reflection of life’s journey. We are such a tiny speck in this vast journey. As you stand at the foot of a huge dune, you have no idea of what you encounter after crossing over the top, or how many more dunes lie ahead on your journey. And a sudden storm can erase your steps in the sand of time.
Yes Deb. And we chase those mirages mistaking them to give us eternal wealth and happiness, when we ourselves are but a fleeting moment in this gigantic cosmos.
So very true – absolutely love the visual of “our lives being a fleeting moment in this giant cosmos”
Your words are just perfect 👌
To describe the journey of life 👌
A wonderful tanka
My pleasure 🌼
So wonderfully created: “footprints in the sands of time /define man’s impermanence”
Thanks Benjamin. I too just love the phrase, footprints in the sands of time….and I am guilty of using it many times in my poems 🙂
