Keeping In Touch With......... - Poem by lalitha iyer

The Air kept in touch with
and the body heaved and sighed
and the blood pumped
and the pulses counted
and life was there

The roots kept in touch with
the soil to nurture its babies
high up facing the blues
were the golden petals
and deep green leaves

The Sun touched the earth
on its way the Arrogant Ocean path
soon the vapours found their way
into the sleepy clouds astray
down came the rains a day
wetting the parched chests of muddy clay.

Days were beautiful when letters were received
the thoughts and feelings covered and conveyed
keeping in touch with the prosperity in the other end
keeping in touch with the miseries and battling trends....

what is in an e-mail or in a call of phone?
it's a recognition,
a way of telling you are somebody I want
to share with my heart's emotions fond
I seek in your person some extra identity
something that I shall lean against on hours of misgivings
KEEP IN TOUCH, KEEP A WATCH, IT'S A LATCH
A KEY TO THE WORLD OF JOY AND COMPANY...
