You are my vintage photograph,
where our years stand yellowed and green.
A country swept dewy zephyr you appear,
wonder what you did intervene.
There was a sweep of gold dust here,
I saw the sun's foolhardy preen.
I would sing, but I dont want the pixies to know,
where we hid all that sepia sheen.
Infinitely negligible is how I feel when I look around the world I am decadently fortuitous to live in.
The millions of inspirations floating about, boundless ideas that regale me and at the same time tell me how ignorant I really am. And that I have so much to do, so much to accomplish, so much to learn, so many ways I can apply myself in, so many dimensions I could be in. And that knowledge, is frightening and overwhelming and inspiring all at the same time.
Perhaps a bit baffling too. Baffling for not having known about that one new thing I came to know now, baffling to see all these frogs in the well around me who tell me I am being stupid when I tell them I would like to this, I would like to do that, baffling not because they think I am stupid, but rather because of the fact that they donot perceive what I do, baffling because they are so buried in their non chalance soaked tombs, stenciled with watermarks of 'this-is-the-best-i-can-be', that they donot feel the necessity of looking up and about and just notice.
Just notice! You donot have to go anywhere to find inspiration, to find how the world is so much more devastatingly glorious than what you thought, to realise that you are actually nothing with what you think you have or can do, and that the trek from what you are, to what you can be is endless. Abysmally Endless.
"Donot stand at my grave and weep,
I am not there,I did not sleep.
I am a thousand winds that blow,
I am the diamond glints on snow.
I am the sunlight on ripened grain,
I am the gentle morning rain.
When you awaken in the morning hush,
I am the swift uplifitng rush
Of quiet birds in circled flight,
I am the soft stars that shine at night.
Donot stand at my grave and cry.
I am not there,I did not die."
