Scripting the Immortality 

We are immortals

Among the inkers.

Trespassers can admire

The garden of dreams.

Brave steps are to be taken

When the war is within.

Dead logs

Do not sleep to awake.

We are grasses

We grow between the stones.

Speak of the pain

The forsaken ones

Have stories untold.

Mortality can be changed

To immortality,

Desires and deeds

Can be scripted.

There are minutes of worthiness

When admiration

Teaches a lesson.

The artist appreciates the art

And rest is timelessness.

In the beautiful hour

Tiny hands learn to write.

No meanings are concrete

When free flowers are

Decorated in descriptions.
