Unconventional, radical and abstract
Would you be a thoughtless fool? Wallowing aimlessly. Would you rather be a fool with a thought? Perplexed with the Philosophies of the great thinkers. Would you be a fool? The unconventional fool? Oh, what I fool! Would you ponder on a foolish thought? Would you… Could you be a fool with a priceless thought?
Chasing rainbows on a misty Monday morning. Capture sunlight in the cup of my hand? Who would you rather call a Fool? be with a fool?
Speak of unbridled truth for truth sake. In Sweetness or in Agony; truth calms the restless mind. What the head hides the heart remembers. In the light of truth, all fades from the thought. Yet, with no fear release thy tongue from its chains. Discerning of the absolute rather not of relative or half spoken truths.
What is Divine and Human? Of lofty thoughts raises high the spirit. Divine in thought forms the human in delivery.
Even tempered fool falls off the merry go around Life. Thrown off the ride, on solid ground, dazed but not run over with. Witness or journey with this bumpy and high ride on a pastel coloured stallions rising and falling. Brisk as winds blows and bellows. Pushed or pulled over, fools remain steadfast. Restrained with words is the one who is a vessel of wisdom. Slow to anger a fool is.
A fool is he who has the audacity pronounce the deafening truth leads him to his silent grave. Cold and unmarked grave lies the fool who dared to speak the truth thus gains the price of death.
Death does not conquer the fool rather liberates the spirit of the soul who seeks nothing but the good. Beauty masked in death or beauty held by the living dead?
A walking dead, stench and filth covers a fool who is with the world yet a child of the universe; who sees everything in a grain of sand and hears clearly what the wisp of cold air brings.
For whom the Bell tolls? The fool who is not of this world but walks like a king.
Would you consider the thoughts of a fool? There are two sides of a coin. A fool savours the difference between two sides by not taking any sides. To be a fool is bliss. Thought and action is free. Freed from the drudgeries of antiquity and the confines of the haughty man, the stiff and cold. Of empty pockets like a hollow casket a fool can thrive even on wits. Dried cups of coffee, To the Pauper the world is real. Unveil a metaphor, the world belongs to the fool. Like the sparrows in the sky, the fool rests on a figment of hope crossing faith and wisdom that all will be well. Of sparsed treasures resting of cherished possession a dewdrop. Better empty than with great wealth with turmoil and enslaved soul. He who has no control is a fool. He who are weak, disheveled, and are ridiculed is a fool. Nature takes its own course to ride or control a fool can follow. Unconventional so is a fool called in the midst of dogma and dharma. Radical towards progression, only a fool can initiate because he is a fool. A view of the world that is not tasted or easily understood is a fool’s world. Abstract and amorphous is a fool felt rather than seen. A fool has no face and no race, the Foolish rises only on the ocassion. Elusive! True! a fool is different and will always be different in thought, word and deed – the name itself tells it all. A Fool.
