Five Birds - Poem by Gajanan Mishra

Five birds
came to me.
One took away
What was there
In me.
The second came
And returned
What was there
In me.
The third came
And told nothing.
The fourth came
And took away
My time without
Giving any information
On the way or in
The middle of
My journey.
Yet the fifth one
I have forgotten
My dear, to tell you
What has happened
To it.
Thanks to you
You have reminded me
Again and again
To tell in clear terms.
Let me clear then, I am
That fifth one
And I am here
As before to
See every sight,
But stay calm within
You and also
Outside you
Keeping all truth
In tact in
Deep blue.
