Free verse 32 -Angle of View

My eyes look above
The light bit into my eyes
I can see some flying
I can see some talking
A blue umbrella above,
The dark green canopy
Light fights to shine
The touch of breeze waves
Swaying leaves conversing
Wavering leaves reflects people
From one after the other
The light over my eyes,
made me close my eyelids
Splash of memories plays
Opens my eyes slowly
To witness the reality

Eyes closed mantras inside, expected someone

How Blessed I’am…

How Blessed I’am

How blessed I’m to have my eyes, so that I can see all my blessings
How blessed I’m to have my ears, so that I can hear all sounds of nature
How blessed I’m to have my nose, so that I can feel all odours in my life
How blessed I’m to have my legs so that I can walk and stand firm on the crisis
How blessed I’m to have my hands so that I can feel the touch of love
How blessed I’m to have my dear ones, so that I can feel your enormous love through them.
How blessed I’m to have a home, many are homeless and abandoned
How blessed I’m to have food, many are starving out of hunger.
How blessed I’m to have my pains, so that I can be more stronger in times
How blessed I’m to have all joys , so that I can feel how blessed I’am

Sleep Awake

On bed , eyes closed opened again

Laid side to side, up and down

Back tracked incidents and the probabilities

Pondered past , present and future

Thinking bells awakened, started ringing

Surpressed emotions jumped out

Family and friends zoomed in

About the people who walked in and out

Eyelids slowly closed opened again

Thank you for reading🙏
