Signals - Poem by Bharati Nayak

Traffic of thoughts
Line up
Jam around
Blocked at the crossings
There is buzz of whirring
Ting -tongs
Red signal
Making them to stand
Stop them from crossing
To the other side
Patience is wearing
When there is
long waits
Roads seem full
Nerves seem to burst
With yellow signal showing up
Hopes come to play
Thoughts liven up
Ready to go
Green signal makes them happy
Clearing the roads
As they gladly move ahead
Cheery thoughts
Rush forward
Singing and ringing.

    As they gladly move ahead
    cheery thoughts
    Rush forward
    Singing and ringing
    I move ahead with the lines
    Singing and ringing

    Red signal symbolizing that a person is in a Green Room to wait and not to loose patience thereby yellow signal reflecting the hope of life to move ahead in near future and at the end the Green signal filling the hearts with joy in embracing the freedom! (Report) Reply

    Signals we find all through the roads we tread, stopping us, directing us whither and thither! Ultimately, where we reach is our own destiny. Signals take no blame or claim. Great poetry. (Report) Reply
