Song of Life – Part I and II

Old men
      and women

Some in smiles younger
     some old

Caves in mouth
Sing a long song of life

A song of waters

Some shoot fountains
      some do a waterfall
Some still as lakes
      some flowing in rivers
Some doing breezy waves
      some lie alone frozen

Age, a music of time
      a giver of lives
Age, a stone smoothened
     in the shape of respect

By itself, in the rolling
    no one can avoid

Thoughts
      and reasoning
Live aloud

In wrinkles
      and drooping bones

Yet as aged men and women

Babies today
      and of yesterday
In smiles, bright as Sun
     and wails of screaming dark

Caves in mouth
     Sing a long song of life

A song of plants

Some high, reach the clouds
      some warm underground
Some with flowers, honeyed
      some shy in warm buds
Some straight, happy on rays
      some curvy, hoping for warmth

Time, a music of age
       a giver of lives
Time, a stone smoothened
      in the shape of care

By itself, in the rolling
      no one can avoid

Feelings
     voices of the heart
Live aloud

In innocent needs
     and soft bones

as babies of today and tomorrow
