Wise Man's Round Thoughts That Cannot Be Quadrated

Looking for solution to one or another matter
wise man  you dive deep and trouble your mind
for what reason? staggering ....
and from where you left you return. 


Jean Moreas

We kept you in our memory
and you were so used to us 

your eyes wide open
to the light of beauty
but from your monocle
you will watch us again. 


The Vain Thoughts [it must be read bottom up]

Some thoughts -- as if it begins wide open with your mind
but as it is going up it gets narrow
like a pyramid
to approach the highest peak
from where can't go beyond.
