    The elephant carries its trunk,
    The snail its home,
    The tortoise its citadel,
    The oyster its pearly self;
    The orphan her homelessness.

    The poem is about comprehension of beauty. While looking for an apt image, I came across this and learned about Wabi-sabi. I am a Wabi-sabist partially. Actually I had seen an image of an empty worn out wooden chair on Gabriel Garcia Marquez's celebrated novel One hundred years of solitude, although the theme was isolation and endless waiting there, I like that. I am fascinated by still lonely images in exotic interior spaces.
    (Charu Gandhi. In response to the poem 'Just Another')

    'Every poem is itself a life,
    It lives in reader's eagerness,
    It talks in reader's emotion,
    It feebles in reader's inattentiveness,
    But never dies for oneness'.
