Unacquainted Silhouettes

Lessons from a friend

Advertisements

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
half-exploited,
like your imaginations

Before taking another
precarious flight,
climb up a branch
higher,

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

 

(inspired from an e-mail conversation with Neha)
