Change

 Walking on the right side,
sitting always on the left,
taking the 7:57 am train,
sleeping on the way.

Switching on the computer,
arranging the desk,
rubbing sleepy eyes,
yawning my way to reminders.

11:30 am fruits time,
1:00 pm lunch time,
4:00pm snacks time,
7:00 pm leave time.

Weekend life,
weekday work,
Innumerable presentations,
Infinite client meetings.

Dreaming about marine drive,
movies back to back,
window shopping with girlfriends,
trekking with naturelovers.

Need of the day,
Change,
Need of mind,
Change.

Need of creativity,
Change,
Need of motivation,
Change.

Travelling unknown places,
sketching abstract,
playing with streams,
lazying on the bench.

Counting the stars,
sleeping in arms,
mischief in the eyes,
catching dandelions.

Need of the day,
Change,
Need of mind,
Change.

Need of creativity,
Change,
Need of motivation,
Change

Time to lounge,
time to dream,
time to flirt,
time to sleep.
 
Time to Change...

  12. Indeed there is a special need for change especially in the corporate sector. In a very subtle manner you surely have touched a common chord there , with many a people at once. I liked it. All the best

  20. Lovely poem
    This is the routine of almost many here.... being exhausted and having no time/energy to devote for a change... it gets difficult....

  21. @Anuradha: its time to change. Do something that you have always desired to, but have not.
