Today as I sit in my balcony,
With a cup -o- tea in my hand,
I hear so many birds.
From all directions,
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.
