What is it going to be today?

The morning Sun
Rising from the sea
Comes across the shores,
Till the evening
It keeps flowing
Over the sands
(Stays on the land)

Will it give flower bouquet?
Will it give fields of war?
Will it give few memories,
That might change the life?
Every single day arises
So many such questions..

The riddles that squiggle with the sunrise..
The rising footsteps in search of answers..

What happens today
Is forgotten tomorrow,
In this new world’s dawn and dusk..
In this new world
Where it darkens with the dawn..)

Within the blink of an eye, happens;
A very long journey
Across the borders..

The realisation of a dream,
The opening of a door,
The very small moment of
Blooming of a seed..

The ever-changing colors
Of every single day,
Is a never-changing illusion..

Like a show of shadows,
Like a show of shadows
Over the path of map,
Goes the procession of all similes..

As the reflections unfold
Upon the morning dew drops,
The drama continues
In every direction..

The tomorrow is with you today,
But this poetry called today is with whom?
(For everyone is running for tomorrow)

Only the light is visible,
What’s the way of life?

Only the sound is audible,
What’s the language of fate?

With no age,
With no aging,
With no introduction,
With no conclusion,
Goes on, this endless journey..

A rich musing on everyday life from dawn to dusk, capturing various simple moments of life. The depth of the song keeps me marveling at life, every single time, I hear this song… Are we losing today by chasing the future or by lingering in the past?

    3. Hey there would be headlines in all news channels if Darshith got lost in Himalayas.. Saying Himalayas is melting down suddenly due to some unknown reason.. Then we could go rescue Himalayas, by dragging him out of there.. 😛 😉 😛


    4. Well unfortunately I don’t watch News n I don’t have news feed. The day when it rained so much that Mumbai got closed for a day, I was not aware n I went to office in heavy heavy rains 😛

      So yeah. I wouldn’t have not known if he would have got lost, unless there was a post on WordPress

    5. Haha.. Don’t worry.. Even you would be made aware of the disaster, if something like he disappearing happens.. 😉

    7. Lol.. Note to write a post before disappearing?! Really can’t control laughing.. 😀 😀

      Btw, make sure you update on social networks or leave a msg to people like me.. So we can start missing you.. 😛 😛


  2. ” Are we losing today by chasing the future or by lingering in the past?”. So often the answer is yes. Tomorrow is the biggest error in belief because, one day, tomorrow will not come. I wonder why so many people don’t get that fact of life (death)?
