Untitled

The dust. On the Path.
Traversed many a times
Over past eons.
The sun shines overhead.
Sometimes, the moon smiles.
And on dark days and cold nights
The rain lashes on pedestrians
And the Road.


I walk the Road now.
It's scarred bosom- the ravages of time
Tell of days passed by- centuries, millenia
My journey so significant, so insignificant
Is there any rhyme or reason to this universe?
A few people walk around me. Their company
give delusions of purpose. Makes me want to go on.
My friends. Brothers.

Dewdrops on grass

Winter and dawn.
And a droplet of dew,
Silent.
Clasps
Onto a rugged blade of grass.

Naive, I exclaim,
"How lovely the droplet.
How rugged the blade of grass."

You smile,
"Every drop of morning dew
Needs her grass to settle down,
And every weathered grass aspires
A moistened jewel in his crown.

Behold the lovely pair."
