I had a dream and, I saw it was a mirage!

I woke up and saw the sunlight and wondered if that was a mirage too.
I walked out and saw the mirage and wondered if that was real.
So I came back in and slid into slumber,
And thence I saw, all that I saw was mirage,
 but yet I refused to accept they were so.
Oh what a fool am I ?

Didn't the image give a momentary joy? If it did, thats all it matters :-)

Be cool. Life is a mirage.
People who dream have imaginative minds. Try to live your dreams.But I don't recommend to live this one.

One day about sunset, Zhuangzi dozed off and dreamed that he turned into a butterfly.

He flapped his wings and sure enough he was a butterfly...

What a joyfull feeling as he fluttered about, he completely forgot that he was Zhuangzi.

Soon though, he realized that that proud butterfly was really Zhuangzi who dreamed he was a butterfly, or was it a butterfly who dreamed he was Zhuangzi!
heard this story?

i am not sure if i understood it correct.. did u use the word mirage as an illusion? this whole world then is an illusion. and the reality dawns when we shut our eyes! thats a profound understanding of our existance!
a very thought provoking poem AK!
