Awareness

Awareness

written by: Dr. MOLLY JOSEPH

 

The sun
yesterday’s
today’s
tomorrow’s
the same…

the usual
dawns
and eves..

but
beyond
hormonal
hijack
an awareness
dawns…
we’re just
the links
in the
cosmic chain..

breathe
easy
be
content…

mankind
has learnt
to slow
down…

to watch
how the
turbulent
waves
take rest
on those
horizons,
dim, distant…

how the
pensive
hilltops
slope down
to the
valleys
to waft in
solace…

time to
reach out
to the needy
for whom
no work
means
no food…

time for
those
stalled
calls to
the ailing
uncle, aunt,
senior
colleague..

time to
reminisce
read, listen..

time for
stars
and star wars
with your
kids…
hah!
how we
have sobered
down
to the tunes
of nature’s
levelling
synchrony..
