A walk would do!

‘A walk would do’, she said

‘just a walk

maybe a cup of coffee

sipping in the aroma of the evening

munching on yesterdays

some music from faraway

a book or two on the table

a pen to note down

thoughts floating by

a little of the evening sun

a quiet breeze lulling in the garden

a few leaves twittering

a bird here, a bird there

a friend to drop by

a simmering stove

some conversation

a quiet corner in a busy city

a small heaven’

life has been a rush

now I would rather rest’,

she stopped

and I sighed

‘long list,don’t you think’?

Bits of blue sky

Bits and pieces of a bright blue sky splattered into my lap

falling through the thick canopy of dark green leaves.

Randomly cut, dissimilar pieces of joy

of unknown origin

refusing to form a pattern, a shape or a memory

stubbornly senseless but utterly bewildering.

I sat still, fearful of breaking those brittle pieces

of losing what was not yet fully formed

of what was not yet fully sense-making

hoping  time to make me a gift

the universal energies  to create

what is best.

A heart beat here, a racing pulse there

beneath the so-called calm and composure

A la Ahilya- wait  for the savior, the messiah

kept tenterhooks of thoughts in place,

tremulous, tittering

footsteps, door openings and creaking windows

the rush of the wind and the gentle breeze alike

caused patterns of distress till closing my eyes

I left time to work its magic.
