Become Like Water

Changes are like water, they drip and drop
In so many shapes and so many forms..

Changes, unnoticed changes
Gradual, not rapid but slow
I never really knew
When and how they seeped
Deep In to my skin
Methinks, I see mirror everyday
Hardly any change
Reflects back in my eyes
But I'm changed
In more ways than I can say
When it happened?

Many times walls in my room
Painted, repainted
Skyscrapers looming around my space
Built from nothing
Mighty tree next door dropped
Heaps of leaves
I've never seen them die out
Always on time
Unheeded, they come and go
When it all happens?
I guess I fail to notice

I wish to become like water
When changes being darted
Along my way
What's in it to notice?
To get it over with
 Swiftly adapt.

You must be shapeless, formless, like water. When you pour water in a cup, it becomes the cup. When you pour water in a bottle, it becomes the bottle. When you pour water in a teapot, it becomes the teapot. Water can drip and it can crash. Become like water my friend.

Who Are We, If Not We Talk

Be not afraid; the world is full of noises
Of yours and mine, from time to time!!

Talking, exit means relief, shedding
Of burdens and worries, light felt heart
Voice that comes out, leaves a mark
Pathway for the problems to follow
Then they just ooze out.

Heart seeks what? A congruent heart
That catches skipped beat and skipper
Says too little, next time a little more
Sometimes pushes, sometimes pleads
Adjusts, as shifts the needs.

Verbiage, overflowed this tiny heart
Crazy paving, then there’s highway
Speak, talk-to-me, faces say
Patterns, patterns so many
Public and personal displays.

Why interrupt when one goes on and talks
It’s a sober job to enounce, to rant, to scream
Sometimes, in midst of all this voiced chaos
A mind is freed, for a while at least
Come and go, that are worries.

Who are we, if not we talk
With voice or with quite
We all take this walk.
