Three moons appear from three holes in the window

One night in my studio, I find myself struggling with new ideas when I notice three small lights touching my wall, reaching from three holes in my window.  Tiny moons inhabiting dark space. I am mesmerized as time stands still.

In this instance of awareness, the holes from my window burn holes in my mind, and in my memory.

Branches of light and shadow perform gestures on the wall, blessing my space. 

I wonder if these impressions come and go, unnoticed? Do I miss the nuances around me when my mind is preoccupied?  Can I look inward to understand why moments of ephemeral light bring me so much joy?  Should I search for scientific explanations? 

In Plato's cave, shadows on the wall were a reality for prisoners; not an accurate representation of the real world. But IS there reality in darkness?

The tiny moons on my studio wall are somehow eclipsed, and disappear. My mind questions over and over…  what is really happening? 

The studio is dark again, and the rhythm of life returns back to normal.

In the recent times, during my walk on the street of Damascus, I see repeated scenes of people falling down, people of different ages and from different social levels, elderly or young, woman or man, walking alone or with their families. They all share the same scene of fall down for different reasons andm different way but conduct the same meaning.
I look to their tired faces and I don´t see the feelings of shame or discomfort. after their tumble down.They are indifferent to their weakness, full of sadness and anger, they share the same feelings of the pedestrians who just look to the fallen and continue their oppressed, exhausted walk. Does everyone believe that falling down is the regular scene in our city where human and stone collapse.

A part of all, lives as the whole to show how many is small measured
with all of the whole approaching to the space, living in the time
without any ability.
A part of all related in the place till dissolve.
