Oh tiny little bug,
Crawling on me and wriggling your tiniest feathers,
Waiting for the right moment to jump and fly,
Fly like a star in trillion galaxies.
You fly around with no fear,
Like there is no tomorrow but only the present,
Your tiniest eyes searching for the tiniest food,
God bless you, tiny little bug.
When I first saw you, it wasn’t first love
Being lean and narrow like me.
Once I started riding you, I felt you.
I felt adventure and openness within me.
You are my first ride and you will always be on my side
Being a duplicate version of my self.
Young, lean and full of energy.
Made in heaven, people say,
For me it’s hell.
Bonding of two souls, religions say,
For me it’s suppression.
Another burden for my damaged soul
Better I don’t accept it
For my cup is already full,
I don’t see a choice here,
Simply it’s a no-no.
You caught my attention with your weird eight legs,
Allowing you to walk past any hurdle,
No matter what the terrain is.
Your tiny little antennae
Smelling everything that comes in your way, good or bad
Spinning a web of delusion,
To catch hold of your prey at your legs.
You spin and spin and spin around
Till you complete the beautiful net.
Giving an example for humans
That persistent effort reaps benefits in the long run forever.
An example that nature is the greatest teacher for all.
Life is an equaliser.
Humans balanced by God.
Nature balanced by humans.
Wildlife balanced by nature.
Plant life balanced by wild life.
Carbon di oxide balanced by plant life.
The endless cycle goes on till the balance is disturbed.
You cover my face with your tender wrap,
Selflessly making me clean and becoming dirty,
I squash you, mash you, crush you mercilessly
And your tenderness only increases by time,
You cry with grey tears as I forget to feed you water for weeks
And blush green when I finally dry you up
Shining like a bright paddy field.
And always having a soft spot for me.
Absorb pain, reflect joy,
Absorb money, reflect generosity,
Absorb hatred, reflect kindness,
Absorb shadow, reflect light,
Absorb jealousy, reflect inclusiveness,
Absorb desires, reflect peace,
Absorb red, reflect blue.
The Hunter hunts the deer to feed his family;
The deer runs to save its life ;
Which side are you? The Hunter or the deer ?
God gave you two eyes to see,
What did you do with them?
Did you enjoy nature?
Did you correct something wrong?
Did you navigate the world?
If yes, then no worries,
If not, it’s time to focus our eyes inwards
See why you are not able to See,
And set the world free from your prison.
A man without emotions becomes a mechanical calculator; emotions give life to the soul.
