Minutes of Merit by Sushant Thapa

Minutes of Merit

Sushant Thapa

Stars inscribed in red bricks,

Yellow flowers blooming in a cactus plant.

Stars in bricks do not shine

Flower of a cactus doesn't act and prick like a thorn.

What is life?

An observation

Or feelings?

Perhaps life is an observed feeling.

Maybe discovering coherence is all you need.

To not let the observation hide;

Script or play with it

Within every minutes of merit.
