Are There No Answers...?

Is poetry
Like a camera?
However many shots it may take
All are different
If the doors of eyes are shut
The windows of dreams would be opening
Would they leave with the speed of light?
No tree is allowed
To grow in the city
There, don’t they know
That there is a limit?
All the timber in the house
Was once in the forest
How many trees’ barks are there
For this world, how many ancients
Laid the foundation?
What is the language
For silence?
What is the colour of the wind?
Does the river know what is the shore?
Does the spider know
How the web comes?
Does the canvas know
Which picture is on it?
Does any living being know
Which is its last breath?
