Poetry

Swift fingers on the tap of that tune,

Ruffling hair and those unread pages,

A look in the eye of the sky, windows waving,

Friend from the universe hugging your claims,

There’s a different relation, a beautiful sanity,

Aren’t we looking for it in everyone we meet?

 

In our loneliness, regrets and sorcery,

A bunch of strangers and secret agony,

Jealous from some, apathy for others,

Same pair of eyes, hands, ears and emotions,

Taken down on the heart or pages,

Doesn’t matter how we express,

Misuse though, don’t,

Trust is the factor everyone banks …

Looking at the sky, I wonder sometimes,

Does nature have all the answers?

I roam around the roads, I drop a sigh,
