Tell me how we came to be? How the stars and the sun, the clouds and the wind, the moon and everything come to be? Was there really a big bang, poof and voila! Or is that all just a mystery?
There were no bangs and poofs, but there were huffs and puffs, I tell you! The pufferfish puffed and puffed and blew bubbles to the surface. The bubbles brought the sun and the moon, the stars and the clouds, all to their respective places. And that is how we too came into being, from the tireless fish's mind and it's vision!
Will you go on an expedition with me? We will ride an emu through a field of flowers. I promise to tell you all the stories in my heart and together we shall look for them in the fluffy blue sky.
Hard parched terrain, relentless undulating
Prickly thoughts, desertion thoughts
Thoughts barbed by frustration, spiked by uncertainty
But wait a minute, stand back and look
Succulent and luscious they sprout from the drought
Flowers burgeon vibrancy, varied silhouettes adorn
The forlorn skyline fades, beauty restored.
Your Inner Voice.
Inner Voice, who?
Keeper of your mother's sound, that Inner Voice
Giver of opinions unsolicited, that Inner Voice
Thinker in all your predicaments, that Inner Voice
Taker of moral high-ground, that Inner Voice
Pleader of sense, that Inner Voice
Asker of peace, understanding and forgiveness, that Inner Voice
Panic sets in when met with a silence, that Inner Voice.
Loud and chaotic, words uttered are tense
Such a scuffle to understand the nonsense
A thoughtless circus ensues between the two
Feats performed, the other they try to woo
Acrobatic thoughts that twist the mind
Emotions caged, animals running wild
Strings of sentiment in grip of the other
Being reduced to a puppet is a bother
Two minds so disparate, so different
Spare the struggle, the two are incongruent
Two minds distinct and discrete
Thinking their own thoughts, feeling their own feelings
Word for word, sentiment for sentiment,
thought for thought, a connection made
A compatible rhythm cascades
Minds met midway, the bridge crossed over
Into a harmonious concord
So calm, content and continuous the moment
In which they are congruent.
