Last Windmill Tilting

Rating: 4.8

Is truth that important,
or ignorance bliss

Your place on the Ferris Wheel,
roundly dismissed

What first must go up,
by law to come down

Gravity's joke,

if not Heaven bound

life- most familiar word to human but to others animals, flora or fauna what life is I do not know! life- a flowing stream of a river; it receives the birth and leaves the death; right, wrong, truth, false, rules, beliefs, realistic deeds all are fixed in the boundary of this life; but before and after this life everything is mysterious and miraculous! of this life some tales are religions, some realistic deeds are constitutions; some knowledge are virtue and some are impious!
