A man counts
His breaths
On fingers
Another man seeks
Some art
In hungers

How long a man lived is not the important thing, but how well he has lived matters more. When life is turned into an art, a man's mission of life is complete! Great metaphorical poem!

O what a wonderful imaginary! Beautiful and meaningful poem on thought on a philosophical base has been nicely and touchingly inscribed. Thanks for sharing.

Counting days can make one more aware of how very short life is and to live the hours we get intensely and well. Or one can try to insure eternity through great achievement. It would be awesome if one could have both... I like your poems. They make me think not just feel although they do that too

This is magnificent, Ali! I am reminded of how we all react when we discover our own mortality. Some merely count the days and fill the time with activities. Others seek some identity in the ethereal, the abstract, the art. Perhaps in the latter there is a discovery of meaning. A wonderful poem.
