Lessons from a friend

You are a bird,
looking down into
the world from
a branch below

Your branch makes
the sky look too
far, and the earth
too crumbled

The loftiness of
this tree remains
like your imaginations

Before taking another
precarious flight,
climb up a branch

where too much mind
ceases to be;
now try travelling
to other trees


(inspired from an e-mail conversation with Neha)
