The World Beyond
Poem by Jasbir Chatterjee
kept hopping around me, picking the bajra grains
With their beaks,
While I waited under a Metro bridge,
For an office colleague;
Worried, pensive, fidgeting,
I wondered if today's board meeting
Was going to be my last.
Someone stopped by and threw some grains.
Startled, the pigeons
Spread their wings,
And flew up into the cloudy heavens.
And then I realized.
Beyond the board meeting, office politics, and the scowling faces,
A far bigger world exists;
Beautiful, warm, loving, and divine.
