Negotiating Sky

Ah! sky she said

‘wait until our wrath

singes you

burns you

scars you

piercing through your very existence

till you tremble through and through

our indifference is nothing

wait till we turn the evil eye at you.

No, we are not making the Babel again

we are busy bulldozing what is left

of living, breathing and copulating

of building down, no,breaking down

what they built with your benevolence

we know the DNA, the god particle and much more

we know to recreate life

colonize Mars

set the temperature on the Sun

just right for our comfort!

well, not that, not yet

but wait till we turn you inside out

and send the stars screaming for their lives

then dear sky, it shall be your turn

to burn us down

to wipe us out

to breathe fire into our lungs

till then, can we just co-exist?

peacefully, I mean!

And She Gave

For they came in droves men and women

of all kinds and ages from far and near

to the one who gives herself easily in service

to partake in the richness of her good

and then to walk away.

Later though they  were compelled to return to her

fed up of their own anger,greed and indifference.

Each time she snuggled them to her bosom gently

not a word of rebuke, no remorse came forth

just the soothing lull of a loving heart was felt.

Infinite times the hands stretched seeking,groping,searching

as many times she held them kissing, comforting, caressing

She, who was solicited but never loved as one’s own

was for all and not for one.
