Even Flow


Even flow, thoughts arrive like Butterflies
Oh, he don't know, so he chases them away
Someday yet, he'll begin his life again
Life again, life again...
~Pearl Jam

Like always,
I was thinking about the times long gone
tree that still stands there and so does the rising Sun
still so fresh, animatedly etched in my memory
but good way off my reach on the contrary
those suspended times I often go back to
to school arcade, nigh park or my college street



Like always,
I was thinking about the times ahead too
if truth said I don't have much to tell you
explorin' heterogeneity of my oneiric world
feelin' the ceilings, measuring how vast they will be
familiar faces smiling, fortifying every turn
while I keep swimmin' uncharted territories


I don't have to think about present times
not much juggling with reason nor with rhymes
do what I got to do, stroll, jog or run fast
winds of every season past, all mixed at one
good times wrapped along rough times
feathering sharp edges moments of fun


It takes more than just efforts, sometimes
flow isn't always so even, oddities stretched
along the tracks, debris obstructing
the flow of rain, left alone, I alone sloppy and enraged
I do what anybody would do, actions- reactions
without much ado

  7. Well expressed! For me only the present matters much… I don’t like thinking about the unknown future and whatever it might be perhaps I am in a mindset only to accept and don’t stress myself leading to distress.

  10. first, pearl jam---one of the best bands of all times....ha
    its funny to me the whole NOW movement, i bought it
    but it just seperates what can not be...
    our past present and future in one
    ignore any and we are out of balance
    live in any disregarding the others we are out of balance

  14. I don't have to think about present times
    not much juggling with reason nor with rhymes
    do what I got to do

    A good stand to take, Jyoti! Just do what we have to do and everything else would fall into place! Nicely!
