MIDDAY POETRY – ‘Disconnect’

Disconnect

Running from below
Feeling the river flow
Stuck in current time
Where to find solace mine?

Blast from the news
Current affairs on the go
Dining on my brain

World wide spread of buttocknia
Couch potatoes for dinner
Exercise by moving eyelids

Give me some ice
Cream Brulee on a plate
Takeaway for tonight

Jump into the future
Block of time amiss
Crippled by insomnia

Report from the Mars
Forget your next visit
Without an invite

Eye opener in a can
Life with no message
Inside the common mind

Blackout of wisdom
Citizen of TV series
Shut down into stillness

Water drops from a pipe
In isolation

Insanely disconnected

MIDDAY POETRY – ‘Nature’s stillness’

NATURE STILL doing its thing!
Unmoved by people’s concerns
Running the show of life
Continuing the cycles
While creating beauty

Unfettered by the humans restrictions
Animal kingdom has not changed an inch
What can that teach us fretted humans?

Be still now
Know that we are a part of nature
The cycle of life and death

The flowing of water in the stream
The smell of the blooming rose
The bitterness of the poisonous mushroom

All parts of a whole
All one with another
All poised and calm

No fear of life
No anxiety about death
No thoughts to bother

Only in harmonious relationships with other life

Peace prevails in nature
All the while we are glued
To the regurgitated news from the box

Unplug and take your first aware breath!
