Today as I sit in my balcony, 

With a cup -o- tea in my hand,

I hear so many birds.

From all directions,

Non stop.

Uninterrupted they enter my ears,

Giving me immeasurable joy.

It is a grand musical, trust me! 

Watch how the brain relaxes,

Vessels open up, 

The heart beat slows down,

Trying to match their frequency.

I feel one with them.

They bind me to nature.

Not vulnerable or weak, 

Not wanting supremacy or control.

Simply blending in the pure existence,

Where we have no existence! 

You know why? 

Today mankind is forced to withdraw indoors.

And all the noise the artificial 

mechanics make, are gone.

A few minutes can leave such an impact!

O Man! Then to heal thyself, 

You will have to let the earth rest.

She is compassionate, caring, tolerant.

But tired now. Let her replenish.

She cannot continue to absorb

The mindlessness in the name of progress.

Slow down now.

Match the steps with nature.

Tune in the rhythm with other life forms.

And you will experience an eternal dance. 

Else, earth doesn’t need your intelligence.

She will find her way to heal herself.

She doesn’t need you, you need her.

  2. This is sooo beautiful. I heard so, so, so many birds too this morning – and even now and was feeling the exact same way. Feel like you draped in wondrous words, the words and feelings of all of us – sitting in silence at home and praying for all to be well, in the lap of Mother Earth. Thank you!
