  1. Brilliant! You’ve written just three lines, and there’s such anxiety in my heart and lots of reflections in my head. Our entire existence is a passing. We are not what we were a minute ago. You, too, are already in a different place than you were when you penned your poem. Everything we said, did, created yesterday has left a lasting mark, although we have already changed in time. By the very passage of time, the work separates itself from the author and becomes alien to him. And then it pursues him, and whether he likes it or not, he has to take responsibility for it.

    1. Thank you for a wise, deep and poignant response.
      You are absolutely correct. The moment of creating a thing is passing as time makes its mark in each person’s transformation (whether one notices it or not). Try as one might that moment cannot return; however, as you stated so astutely, their is an accountability unspoken but nonetheless there somewhere that tugs at the creator of a thing to take ownership and to respond.
