Imagine this without any reason or thought known; observing the surroundings asking you have we been here before; and have we already witnessed the things which are now being shown.

 

Could we have been the part of that gigantic star, which beamed the night from the places far or little particles of that desert sand, which moves with air; scattering, spattering and again re-gathering in different shapes on different lands.

 

May be we were that drop of rain that refreshed the memories of the lovers while silently resting on the window pane. 

 

Whatever it would have been one thing is for sure; we always have been here today and before.

 

Either in a form of flower which a young lover might have given to his heart; or like a poison, which would have breached the trust and defied the reason;

 

May be we have been a part of the family of birds, which we don’t see in our skies anymore; migrating in search of food and water from one sea to another shore.

 

We could also have been that tear of joy which a mother must have shed from an eye at her child birth or simply have been the part of that green grass which points up at the sky while remaining grounded to the earth.

 

Ah! Heart feels a joy to think that we could have been the motion of that wind which is untied and free; or as a bunch of leaves we might have witnessed Buddha attain peace under an enlightened tree.

 

We might have rested easily on the crown of an emperor or have been that storm which had engulfed many kingdoms with its violent roar.

 

As a ferocious lightening we might have struck fears in many hearts or could have been the color with which an artist might have enhanced his Art.

 

Whatever it would have been one thing is for sure; we always have been here today and before.
