"Beauty is truth,
truth beauty,
that is all Ye know on Earth,
that is all Ye need to know..." - John Keats

The corner bench thoughts...

In the corners of mind,
when I ponder, wondering
what is it that I am missing...
Corner bench, aloneness,
and some painful seconds,
when others, all else are smiles,
and laughter...
I, in my corner,
hunched up with songs and
a vacant tearful mind..
There is a pigeon,
sitting there perched up,
a tail wing up, and a rich fluorescent hue...
The turning head,
looking this direction and then that...
Everyone, now, is walking away,
gotten up, with smiles and happy thoughts...
And my sole companion has taken flight,
flown away, as so rightly described or
talked of,unique in a way called freedom and bliss,
and the flight, away, into the limitless skies..
I sit there still,
in the corner bench, alone,
and painful seconds pass with a sigh,
still, nothing really happens...

Karthik,
Some days the words just do not flow.
On the other hand, the pigeon is lucky to be able to fly away, most days!!
The ups and downs of life, at times.

Best wishes, Eileen
