“Moon/sun-eclipse lockdown stars and cloud do lockdown Air, wind, breeze lockdown Solar system lockdown My mind and body lockdown My heart will be lockdown soon My blood/vein will be lockdown” Unnoticed solar lockdown that is no longer logical in life for homeward-bound commuters as well mundane life. If we think Moon/sun-eclipse lockdown? If all stars and cloud do lockdown? What about it ? Everything becomes a still-life in my mindcanvas. We are now unknowingly finding meaning and discovering many new vocabularies. Lockdown is the new periphery in our cosmos. It is like blocking and unblocking all life processes. New boundaries act loom up huge to disable and enable human life. We are looking for the verge of light. We move back and forth through the time space continuum but stand still in one space. We feel our circumstances in our space un-birthing. Our life looks like an unknown life. Sometimes we feel we really don\’t know who we are like end to end ? Virtuality on demand technology is un-life. Almost as if an un-pregnant mother gives birth to this day without a sun, planets or solar system.
