words leave me
uninterested .. unconcerned
stranded & abandoned
the forsaken spirit stays
like yonder sullen sky
with deserted clouds and solemn sun,
forlornly silent, formidably lonely!
As I look above uninspired,
Unobstructed by giant concrete structures,
The vast expanse of desert sky above
The vast expanse of arid land below
and here I stand a speck, an insignificant speck
a part and parcel of the land beneath
a part and parcel of the life around,
a part and parcel of the air around,
a part and parcel of the vacuum around,
a part yet apart… apart, still a part!
Here I stand a speck, an insignificant speck
ecstatic, overwhelmed, subdued!
