192. Painting

I am visiting his office after a long time.
The room looks cleaner and beautiful.
There is a new painting on the wall.
It is enchanting.

He is happy to note that it has attracted my attention. 
I ask him about the painting.
For half an hour he elaborates – the artist, the other paintings, and the exhibition.        
With love, with enthusiasm that is uncharacteristic of him.

I keep on wondering.
If he likes the painting so much, why is it at his back?
Is it a process that helps to show him in a different light?

Is he ‘Painting’ himself?

191. Twinning

This post has been published by me as a part of the Blog-a-Ton 37; the thirty-seventh edition of the online marathon of Bloggers; where we decide and we write. To be part of the next edition, visit and start following Blog-a-Ton. The theme for the month is "and then there were none"

The twins come from that indescribable core,
Beyond darkness and light.

One  moves amongst people;
Covers itself with different passions;
It wears colors, masks, sips the emotions;
Takes positions, assumes thoughts;
It presents itself in an exciting manner;
People are more comfortable with It.

The other observes relentlessly.
It does all that the first one does.
It flows and maintains its identity.
It is naked.  It stares calmly.
So it never attracts human beings.
 It frightens.
One always feels strange to face it.

For ages they say: truth is stranger than fiction.
Indeed it is.
The Twinning seems ridiculously insane.
