What To Do And Why To Do - Poem by Gajanan Mishra

Pick a word,
Blow it.
But leave not
Your mouth open.

Try to know
With the word,
What to do
And why to do.

Air is there
In the word.
Use it.

Space is there
In the air.
Use it.

In air
In word
Feel life.

On a knife-edge,
Let me say
Do nothing.

Digest it,
It's poetry
Full of words.
