Consume me

A corner of my house invites me

I customarily sit down to catch on me

Gaze over the wide window in the west

Four yellow merging with the sunbeams

Balls of cotton floating on deep blue

Few flocks racing in arrays of harmony

Curves of greens peeping into the house

Waving in glee as wind murmur through

I just consume all the calmness in sight

Or let the serenity consume me…

Let me move to the countryside….

Let me move to the countryside; or little into the wild

In search of new emotions and the faces that don’t look alike

My soul feels captive in this jungle of concrete

Each breath I breathe with lots of scuffle and fret

No stories to write; no poems to recite

All are rushing to reach nowhere in sight

No moment to rest or laugh or to love

Everyone is worried, hurried and stressed!

Take me to the fields, mountains or the seas

Oh! Just take me away from the cities

A shady tree, a little shack and a river flowing down the track

Nothing much do I need few birds some butterflies

Flowers, grass and the wind passing by

There I’ll sit under my tree writing stories full of life!
