Pebbles


A simple logic that runs through my mind
A hard truth which is equally hard to grind
is that world that we are possessed by
is unfaithful to everybody who is alive..

And we still have faith in it despite
Our logic that doesn’t fit in the given attire
And I wonder what is it that’s mine
irrespective of all the knowledge and quagmire..
And I wonder how do I know who is mine
irrespective of this cycle of death and life..

A sinking feeling then makes me realize
the depth of simplicity that I have taken in hand so easily
A negative feeling, in me that balloons inside,
then feels the pressure of the positivity in the air outside..
But it keeps soaring high in the sky
And I wonder when the balloon would deflate into nothing…

The complexity has churned nothing out of my head
And to contemplate upon what they and I said
has lost its charm as it doesn’t seem to help!!
So what do I do? Others say that I should take some rest
and spare them from the torture of  the whips of the simple and the complex!
But I say someone would foresee, someone would understand
The need to mull over the seen and unseen, heard and unheard, fought and abandoned..

Well I suggest that this complexity is an exercise to understand the simple
And our logic and thoughts are nothing but ripples
that arise out of some disturbance, good or bad, in our lives..
So let’s just sit quietly at a river bank, under shade of a tree
And drink the beauty of those ripples appearing, swimming, and disappearing
caused by nothing but by pebbles of those moments…

  12. The mind is its own master...its own mistress and its own follower...

    Let the mind run...let the mind sing...

    Attune it to heart, let both of them win!

  22. That was a nice reflection,Sakshi. Enjoyed reading it. And to try something to add as a tribute:

    I have been so lucky in life
    To collect a lot of pebbles.
    Yes. There was unrest and strife
    But I never allowed them to throttle

    My life, I live it the way I like,
    Counting on pebbles to support me
    When I am down or sorrow strikes.
    They are delightful to me.

    Be it a sibling or just a friend,
    Their acts of kindness is etched
    In my memory, thus forming a pebble,
    Thankfully they are not farfetched.

    I may rest a bit happier
    Had I done something good
    To someone who is far or near,
    And hence not forgotten good.
