LITTLE THINGS|LIFE POEMS
I walked through a road
Saw someone quite old
a fruit seller
,
Full of wrinkles
,
Whose eyes, Tell the tales
Of all his life's phase
Locked my gaze
With his
My heart skipped a beat
shifted my gaze
Smiling at my toenails,
Silently Praying in my heart
For a dart of ease
,
for him.
There
,
I felt the whole world
Centered around me.
As if
,
its laughing
At silly me.
Sobbing at her father's shoulder,
A child
,
Caught my attention
I felt amused
,
Smiled at her
,
Tear filled
Her eyes, got wider
She got Restless
and
Shook her head
at me
Felt like ripple of softness
Gathered around an emotion
Which I can't
comprehend,
It felt feather light
And joyous,
Made that part of my day
Easiest.
Heard a man singing
And humming,
In middle of the night.
As if
,
He was coming from somewhere,
That calmed his mind
Gave him delight,
in the time he got alone.
Me being at home,
Opened my window's drapes,
To see
Who was he?
Ended up enjoying the lyrics,
And laughing,
At his self created melody.
He got his share of joy
And I got mine.
People share
Moments and minutes
,
In a single paradigm
Without knowing.
Meanwhile
River of Time
Keeps flowing.
