Today, the air seems still.
In the pangs of silence, how vividly my emotions I feel !
Why have you stopped flowing, air ?
Flow like you used to, blowing away and bending things everywhere.
Flow once more so that I can lose myself in you.
For now I care for things and people few.
Look, even the flowers are not dancing their usual way !
Why do you all look so dull today ?
People have deserted me and so I am sad.
But, what makes you all feel so bad ?
The blue skies look so beautiful. I can stare at them forever.
Wish I could fly up to you and return to the earth never.
These earthly affairs have started hurting me.
I lay in chains but now I want to set free.
You give so freely, calmly and sweetly.
But you know – the mortal world behaves so selfishsly.
They live for themselves, thinking that a world stands here and exists only for them.
They think they are the only wise ones – All go around thinking the same !
They often talk about truths that are cut and sized to fit their path, while they walk quietly on it.
They teach their kids – This is how the world. Now, go and live it.
Now doubt amidst these chaos, I had few moments to smile yet nevertheless I had my own share of sorrows, my friend.
I don’t know when shall this gloomy day in my life end.
I came to you to seek some solace, some inspiration.
But you today even you seem so silent as if waiting for someone in apprehension.
It is okay. Let you be yourself for now.
I will sit here amidst you, seeking solace somehow.
