Treasure Island

gajanan mishra

(3rd April 19sixty / Tikapali, Patnagarh, Balangir, Odisha, India now at Tapobana, Titilagarh, Odisha, India)

A dog wags its tail

A dog wags its tail
The tail does not
wag the dog.

My thought is my creation
I make my thought real
With all felicitation.

    A very good discourse on the dog. An excellent comparison on thoughts.
    Our mind and our body have to be in unison and compliment each other.
    I had to laugh just picturing the dog being spun around by its tail. I like
    this one.(smile) (Report) Reply
