Everyone talking none listening

Pulse beating no life flowing

Many hands outstretched no one sharing

Where are we heading when all following


Pause! Take deep breath, look around, pause,

Take time to gaze upon the smile that spreads

From the eyes where it begins until,

reaches the smile to  tips of the lips .


Under the green bough stretched

Eyes close, mind wide opened

Warm sunbeams strengthen while spectral

Stars, moon seen in the mounting insights


What a life it be with all care

But no time for any to envision

Taste the sweetness of touch

Touch of another vital soul.


What a life it be if humans love people

Praying for the sick, young and the old

People persist as people, people protect people

And why not live as the highest creation?

and  seriously take our role as People!!

Shall we be WE?
