Once upon a time .... Kindness sauntered Uninhibited , Down the lanes Of each town . She found herself in ... The palms Of giving hands . Hearts willing To love beyond The colour of skin . Eyes that Saw YOU as YOU . She stayed at will in ... Homes lit up by Compassion .
But slowly As this world Became less real , And more virtual ... She somehow lost her way , Into hands , hearts and eyes .. Finding a place , More in words . Less in actions .
I belonged To a generation , Where I saw kind deeds Done silently . But now , I see them making Front-page headlines . As fodder to satiate , Inflated egos .
As I wonder ... How lucky was I To witness kindness In different hues , Once upon a time . I despair now . As I witness , Her colourless existence . It seems like a Far fetched fairytale .
Draped in Ochre gold , Tranquility Visits me Everyday ... As I wake up To the melodic chimes Of psithurism .. My soul Is cleansed , By the divinity That I see Around me .. What a blessing To be alive ! Echo the valleys .. As I bow In gratitude For being Able to witness The dawn break Atop mountains .. And the dusk Bathe life With her mellow hues .
Ah !! That forelsket Feeling .. As he revels In love .. Drawn by her Elysian eyes .. A poetess aesthete . How laconic Is she ! Her words Turn into Mesmerizing Poesies .. She's like the Mellow colours Of the dawn ... Delicate and Yet so effulgent .. And each time She walks Past him .. His heart Hums melodies ! He's Twitterpated !
