Insignificance.

Wouldn't it be easier
if we stop seeking answers to things like
what is more scary,
the infinity above us or the infinity within us?
Because this one solitary thought
of fading insignificantly in either of the two
stealthily walks in
when you
look
away.

    1. No, it's a photo. I clicked it a few months back on my short trip to Kolkata.

      Now that you've mentioned, it does give that feel of a painting.

    2. i think it's the mottled floor beneath the pigeon's feet that does it...they are the same shade as the shadows, and hence the combination of patterns in the foreground give a rather unnatural feel to the entire picture...

  2. I think to stop seeking for answers is scary...and I agree. This shot looks like a beautiful painting!
