Our Earthly Life

A single cell, Latching on to another. Then begins the process of building A complex net. Multiple cells Latching on to each other, Interconnected, Chaos within a boundary, Orderly chaos-perhaps? Within this chaos, Life throbs, thrives, Picks up ideas, images, Leading to some more chaos In thought process, In relationships, Generation of stereotypes, Fixated notions. … Continue reading Our Earthly Life
