Duality

>> Tuesday, April 8, 2008

The party was nifty. Derelict humanity trampled his success, leaving him at twilight, in condition resembling prison riot. He felt torn between social discourses, grotesque impatience to ostracize.

"You planning litigation?"
He turned, readying a polite quip.
He was thinking absently, employment, freedom, hemlines and how she’d managed to find a lipstick that was hypnotic.

very well expressed ... vagaries of thought in the last line leads one to infinite possibilities ..

"readying a polite quip" was extremely apt .. I think most of us can relate to tht .. brilliant as usual ...

"Derelict humanity trampled his success.''To compress a world of thoughts inside a pearl, or writing the whole of 'koran' on a grain of paddy, is a cumbersome art. And our dear Aria has suceeded in that creative art. This is master craftsmanship. .. in embedding a horizon in a dewdrop.... And i can proudly announce to the world that she has at last 'ARRIVED'. Cheers Aria. Hats off to you! kunjubi

I am in the same boat as Vi. (and) although Cheti isn't here.. Am sure if he was, he too would have happily hopped into our boat :-)

Kheir, as they say mediocre art -"gives answers".. while good art -"poses questions". Your writing falls in the latter category.

Thank you, for your kind comments everyone... valued :)

aria, i liked this latest artwork so much more than the previous one. i forgot to comment in my previous one that it almost looked cheap, and out of place, in this sublime place. this one goes really neatly with the theme.

regards,

I know just how he felt.. often get hypnotized myself by that steak of glossiness adorning nails or a pair of lips..

I love the change of pace and the brevity of this new style of yours.. Bhery Interesting if I may say so.. Keep it Up Aria..
cheers

oh, and by "artwork" I meant the image in the blog template, not any writings. i guess it's clear, but still..

"....how she’d managed to find a lipstick that was hypnotic." That was the key to everything for me, a glimpse of the opening..:)) Nice one, Aria

Thank you people for all your kind words.. there is some denting-painting work going on in my apartment so I'll be away from blogs for a few days.. :(

Hi Aria,

Hope you are fine. First of all very sorry for the delayed response, as of now I am hopelessly out of the online world for the next few months due to my hectic work schedule and change in my place of job now, where it will take me sometime to settle down in the absolutely new environment. So I may not be able to respond to your mails and queries in time or visit your blog regularly. Still I will try to keep as much contact with you online in periods. I will hope you will give as much support as possible to me in the future as you have given in the past. My blog will also be stagnant for some time as I take the time to settle down in the new place & complete my other tasks.

For Your last two posts I have gone through them....simply beautifully written words...excellent

Wishing you a very wonderful life ahead. Thanks & do stay in touch.
