Without Doubt

Rainfall is not for drinking.
Birds in the city chirp with thirst
When no water cups are kept
By the hands that serve.
The naked tree
Hides its shame
Under the open sky.
Sights do not forgive
What is seen.
Outlook is a destination.
Clouds sing in chorus
And do not admire things
That fly without wings.
Frozen lake is a playground
Only in doubtless reality.

2. Ways

To be minimalistic and
See the value in life.
To feel the trustful breeze and
Not let it pass without weaving
The stories that touch with it.
To pass a coin from the past and
Know the cost of the future.
Details ruin tempting seconds.
Only sickness sleeps without alarm
Health is watchful to hustle and bustle and
Feels no disturbance in its babel sleep.
If ripples bring purity
The risk can be taken to wash the water
With sins and forgiveness.
Preaching is not good leadership
Unless action is spoken.


3. Equalization

Silences and pauses…
Enough words have gone astray with them.
Recollections and perceptions…
Drunken wine of perfection that
Makes its beholders tipsy.
Life is but an illustrious jostle
Rising from the restlessness
That teach to remain calm.
Walking and talking
Having done and said
In deeds and frivolities
Build a spellbound maze
Fetch a well to call the thirst.
If lectures could teach about
What simplicity is
No webs of complexity
Would be that compelling.
