ECHOES OF THE FLYOVER
Twin-budded eye flickered a spark,
Ol’ buttermilk sky with cloud-nine mark!
Mesmerizing whisks by trees in the forest dark,
Fist holding the fishes, the blue reflects only the lark!
I flash out, the clock spin, hearing the chirping,
Wonder! Is there a horizon, without your soaring?
Your siesta in noon, shatters troposphere lamenting,
Can’t hark the hush, even whispering or murmuring!
Long miles, I sojourn seeking this “V-shaped” kings!
Across the world, neither beginnings nor endings!
Sat on my heart, patted with your wings!
Nicks a love scar! Are you my siblings?
Birds race one another to share their food stuffs,
Though no banks to pile up their funds!
Humans without humanity! Even to feed water gulps!
Geared up! To demolish merely the poultry huts.
“Towers”-erected, the birds survival in question,
These creatures at the verge of extinction!
Preserve these species for our future generation,
My ears wishes ever to hear the rhythm of your oscillation!
