Eucalyptus And Sunflower

weight and lightness
darkness and rays
uneven proportion
life is like a graph
go right......infinity
go left.......infinity
but in the middle
a perfect zero

in some corner of my heart
I feel a presence of an
Eucalyptus Tree and a sunflower
the tree opens up it's branches
and moves upward to reach the sky
as if clouds are it's own
and the sunflower gazes
at the sun
day after day
with a strange kind of patience


the lightness of sunflower
the weight of the Eucalyptus
the flower can never reach the sun
neither the tree can touch the sky
with a vague pride
it announces it's failure
a perfect zero for both!

still in some corner of my heart
I feel their presence
and each day the sunflower
tries to appear one step more closer to sky
than the tree

have you seen a flower taller than the tree?
fill the blank
with the ink of nothingness!
