~ The element of being ~

"All the moments that make up a human being have to be written about, talked about, painted, danced, in order to really talk about life. "
Rita Dove

A body you are
Yet you are an existence in lavish form
Immaculately watching yourself
Knowing this is all you
Rays of light
This is where you have been
The other journey is yet to be explored
A droplet is life
So complex in that tiny drop of who you are
Your core thread that connects it all
Is in your soul
Drapes the element of your being
A droplet you are
In palm of life galaxy

"Let us see again all the ambiguities and contradictions that make up a human being: the good and the bad and how they can exist in one person and make a complex individual."
Rita Dove

Nicely put, as usual.
I am tracking the progress of Burj Dubai. How far are you from there. It is said that we will be able to see the land of nimrod (nimrud) from the top, when it is finished!!
