Poem: What I observed?
Today, whilst I sat on the oscillating chair,
Thoughts began to flow and those were rare,
They arrived arbitrarily when I closed my eyes,
When I opened my eyes, I saw a pen on my side,
I picked it up slightly and muttered few words –
“Dear Companion, help me in bringing my thoughts into words.”
Suddenly, I heard a noise of a chirping bird,
I went to the balcony and saw and observed,
There was a little pigeon whose voice I heard,
“Oh”, said I, “How cute you are!”
“Where are your parents? Are they too far…?”
There was some silence, for a moment, for a while…
I couldn’t understand his language, yet it was okay and fine,
I wrestled with the question; the reason of his crying,
I couldn’t get any answer, since thoughts were flying,
The voice of my heart was, “He is lost, sad and weeping.”
So, I offered him bread, which he enjoyed it eating,
Truly, it felt great to do all this,
A sense of satisfaction that I didn’t miss,
After sometime, his parents arrived,
Then, I understood the scenario and smiled,
They all seemed jubilant to see each other,
The family got together, I told my mother,
Afterwards, they flew and I wrote what I knew,
This is what I observed and it was something new!
