Meditate


Love is in the air
But so is smog
And dust and noise and CO2
Meaningless campaigns
Dull cartoons Blunt advices
Obscene jokes Political wars
Pierce through eyes, ears, nose
Oh give me a break
In silence let me meditate.


Note: This poem was published in the literary journal Muse India

  2. From love to smog to dust to noise to poison to meaninglessness to crudity to blood sheds... a tortuous (necessary evil?) path to Nirvana....????

  6. Beautiful! We all need a break from the grim, mundane realities...

  7. Heh heh! It's all just a cauldron of muck. We just want to see what we want and ignore the rest. The besotted eyes of a lover never cares for the carbon monoxide in his lungs. He gets enough life from those limpid pools of raw happiness.

    But to a third party (read: God), the world would really look like something as you described. :D
