A sparrow and his mate
sat in the sun and ate
juicy worms and stuff.
Came a cat’s sinister purr
there was a hurried whirr
the pair fled, feathers and fluff.
The cat stalked in there
with his tail in the air
all insouciant and bluff.
Finding himself alone
he gave a baffled moan
And vanished in a huff.
This sort of daily drama dose
is common for those
who observe nature and its stuff.
Well reader, do you identify with this poem? Nature’s drama is routine, wouldn’t you agree?
I had captured these frothy waves on my camera a few days ago. Looking at the parallel-line, right-angled waves, I felt awe-struck and came up with a few lines of rhyme:
Nature has geometry
There is artistry
In all its varied tapestry!
It’s part of our ancestry
And lends itself to loads of poetry…
Let’s not think it paltry
But show it some gallantry!
What’s Your Ambition?
Having one is ‘Tradition’!
Here are a few to pick off the shelf
And make a name for (or a fool of) yourself. 😉
“Make a strong pitch
Become rich ₹$€
Let your brains evaporate
But, earn a doctorate ✍🏼
Bend it like Beckham, friend
And turn into a sports legend ⚽️
Sing like it’s an addiction
Grow popular like Michael Jackson 🎤”
Is none of these your cup of tea?
Cool, then you are like me!
Never mind, all these are too fantastic
I prefer something less bombastic!
I have defined ambition for my use
It reads simply: “Be content, no grouse”
I have a good mind to advise you:
Try defining ambition anew!
