Wheels We Are On

by Venkat


Legs, do we need
When our lives move on
On the wheels set by nature

Where the Sun and rain
Play their hide and seek
Where the spring waits
Till the snow’s game is up

Eyes, do we need
When our lives move on
On circles we cannot get off

Speak so, these Devils
Tearing my mind’s flesh
By their ever starved teeth


What good be the Sun
I never touch
What good be the rain
I never measure

When the legs stand frozen
And eyes shut into a locket
Life and love find their way
To slip off the fine edge
Of the wheels of nature
Our flesh still clings on
