Parallel Disappointment

OceanRailTrack

You are disappointed
Because I don’t envy you
I am disappointed
Because you won’t connect with me

We simply See each other
To intersect, not bother
It is our insistence
To be on the parallel track
In this ocean of existence

Flight of Success

When a bird soars high in the sky

What is it’s connection to the earth?
Is it aware of the height it is at?

Does it perceive the expanse around?
Does it perceive all the freedom surround?

Does it simply take flight in the light
All unaware of the ground below in sight?

Humans that dream of taking flight
Of what is called as success in their intention

When they do take flight in their realm

How aware and connected do they stay
To the ones they left behind in the day?

Do they become one with the height?
Not knowing any difference slight

It is the ones watching them who measure
The distance and the scale of the flight

Is this how detachment sets in
For the ones taking flight?

Relations – A leaf that loves the Tree

When a leaf lets go of a tree …is either sad?

A Tree rooted
Through the seasons
Branches reaching
Finding directions

Leaves of the Tree, light and lively
Bound and connected to the roots of the Tree
Through the branches and the trunk

Does that connection seem like Relations
Amongst them all, in their perception?
Does it define their paradigm of existence?

It Does …

When the Tree is a Family
With a name tag and generations linking

A leaf has a thin delicate link to the Tree
It is nourished with what flows
From the roots, trunk and branches
As the Tree prolifically grows

The leaf happy and grateful as ever
Limits it’s range of movement, for the link
Until days and years unfold of shocking sadness
That the leaf held on with such love
While the branches simply push and shove
Cutting off the nurture, the leaf lived on …

The stalk of the leaf gave up …
As it let go and flew off the branch
Oh such lightness and freedom
The beauty of the gained wisdom
That all the love was within her

She feels all peaceful and powerful
As she drifts away into the space
There are more others like her
Sky is the limit, planet is the playground …

The Tree still exists for her
In her heart and this lifetime’s soul
She will happily link back
If a waft of love and meaning calls her
For she is forever a longing heart
Full of love for whoever sees her …

When a leaf lets go of a tree …is either sad?
