Poem

A huge green tree with few leafless branches

The mighty tree grieves
For its fallen leaves
Tossed away fresh greens
And the branch still weeps

A deadly wind blows
Who’s next, no one knows
While brave hearts struggle
Everyone’s hassled

Greeting with sad eyes
Masks instead of smiles
Gasping for some air
Only a few care

Keep distance, take care
Don’t breathe the foul air
Let’s do online meets
Until the air heals

All the nations grieve
And families weep
Let’s say a prayer
To end this nightmare

Sleep
Evades me
Eyes
Won’t sleep
Alexa, play some music
Nature sounds
Looping
Until I
Sleep

shiny red apple
lying inside the waste bin
only twice bitten

is it someone’s lunch
extra rice dumped in a bin
wasted food, a sin
