Have You Ever…?


Have you ever confided in a tree?
Ever hugged it tight?
Ever leaned on a stout bark
Did it feel right?
Like a long lost friend’s hug
Even without the arms
The unfailing show of faith
trust without qualms.

Have you whispered to a river?
and heard her laugh back?
Ever trusted her judgement;
fulfilling where you lack?
Found answers in her ripples
when you lost your way?
Ever let her correct you,
when the world led you astray?

Have you ever cried on the shoulder
of a night, clear and starry?
and let him take your sobs,
when your dreams had gone awry?
Have you let him tell you tales
of worlds you’ve never seen?
Let him carry you far away
to a dreamland never been?

Have you shouted out with glee
in the ear of the breeze?
and shared his thrilling joy
even as you freeze?
Have you given him your hand
to caress with affections true?
Have you ever seen the world
from his point of view?

Its not too late for it all!
you are still breathing!
But now is the time for it;
shed that protective sheathing.
Heed the call of adventure;
No worry; no misgiving.
You get just one life;
So stop existing.. Start Living!

    And you know being an only child, I’ve actually caught myself doing most of these things.. πŸ™‚

    • Arushika, I was the eldest in the family so for the first four years of my life, I was pretty much the only kid and then when the little bundle joined me, she was too little to play with for two years… so for 6 years, I did grow to do these things…. it became a way of life after that… fortunately, the little one too grew up to like these things… now we enjoy the pleasures of nature’s company whenever we can.. πŸ™‚
