An Encounter Poem by Chandrashekar a posy poet

An Encounter

Rating: 5.0

The empty and lonely sky
yet, so serene and still
and at scorching noon
Why am I eager?
To spot the celestial clouds
Moving in tune and rows of ibis
Fly in rhythm

Why did I?
Snatch the book
And turn the pages so hastily
While trying to resist
An intense outburst!

Why am I so restless?
To find the heavenly leaves
Of light green to dun
Dancing in tune with gentle wind
On naked tree!

Why am I?
to collect so hurriedly
and breathlessly
All that junk food
And had it all so swift
to feel copiously relieved!

Here is the damn newspaper
lying fast asleep
And I wander impolitely
Biting nails with heavy perspiration.
took it uu and tored, crushed and threw
it all to hungry dustbin awaiting next
and felt immensely relaxed!

As the intense heat at last
Began to recede hesitantly
The dirty swollen red face
Still groans and moans
To accept its defeat

oh, a bright soothing twilight
and it's time for another encounter
now, a pleasing and a graceful mind
Still boasts of a feigned anger

Such a classical yet overlooked accounting of how we get caught up in the tensions and triviality of life missing so many times the serenity and peace simply found by looking out the window or gazing at nature's beuaty

A fine narrative poem. 'To accept defeat'- we need not accept defeat. What we need is a heart to accept happiness and sadness with equal equanimity. Life is a mixture. We can't correct the world but only ourselves. Everybody is in search of happiness and peace and that is why he looks at the nature to unload his heart. We are part of this nature and there is an inner urge to feel about the wavelength. This is a natural instinct. In most of the cases, it doesn't sustain even after the twilight is gone or the chirp of a bird is no more heard. Our inner battery requires constant recharge.
