Theme: City

Birds and I in a Metro City

A leafless tree around
While belly-bird flies in search 
Of a soothing perch
With high hopes in heart
Untired, from pillar to post.

My eyes have red sores
Around the dark pupil
While exploring long stretches 
Of a crowded sea
Of the tides with blinkers.

In deep silence
My mind is numbed and dumb
But the heart rhymes
With theirs, lost on the track
Of life in a metro city.

Tired birds and I
Both meet the same fate:
Homeless yet hopeful
Brooding in pensive silence
On the blue horizon.

Orbs of lights dissolve
In dead darkness
Yet the stormy night ends, 
Giving way 
To advent of the morning.
