Global Thinking-A Frog’s Story - Poem by rajagopal haran

Sea was my habitat
Was caught in the net
Felt like left alone
Jumped into a well closing my eyes!

A stranger to the well
Scrambled around blind
Could measure the depth bottom to top
Foot touched the entire solid surround!

Was it another trapping by fate?
Oh! Such a thoughtless fool!
What’s left for me? Only
Mighty God could save me!

Something touched me gently;
“ Hey alien trespasser!
I stay here for long;
What’s the mission to hang on? ”

Shared the story with my clone;
In length and breadth he observed;
“ Ok! How big is your sea? ”
He showed his feet in extension!

He kept on showing more distance
By jumping inside to his level extent!
I made my reply in too many words
Still local guy was lost to the last!

Stormed my brain to the basic neuron
As the unit of measure was uncommon!
Turned to the Maker to help me out
Came the response to follow suit!
