At lightning speed..

“Love comes slow
And it goes so fast”
These are the lines of
Let it go by Passenger
And it is so true
Love came at the speed of
A tortoise
And left at rabbit’s pace
At lightning speed
May be it ran over me
And didn’t even care
To look and see whether
The victim is injured
Or dead
Or whatever
Just went away
Realizing that staying
Would put it in uneccessary trouble
And I am the victim
Don’t have much say in all this
So let me go
Get myself admitted
Enjoy TV and beautiful nurses
The pain of syringes in the bum
The faces of friends and relatives
Whom I haven’t met or talked to
In like eons 😀
All coming for sympathy
Due to accident
Some bothered about the rash driver
But no one could see the inside injuries
The flowers and Get-Well-Soon cards
Helped somewhat in recovering
But I am just not yet over love
The lightning speed with
Which it went and didn’t even say
Good-bye !

Virtual High Five!!

Today, while returning in bus from hospital. Yes, a friend met an accident and luckily he is safe and good now. Probably in his dreamland 😀

On the way, a kid of 12-13 years was working at roadside. May be a daily laborer, working for his share of bread & butter. My left hand was outside the window as I peeped to the world outside. I saw the kid & smiled looking at him. Never hoping for a return smile. But as of most cases, I was wrong because he gave a more heartily smile than mine. That was glorious, shining, bright and divine. My hanging left hand just as a reflex went up in air as a token of appreciation. I was looking back at him. He was looking at the bus going forward in such a speed, making me look more & more far. I was sure he might not had been able to see me anymore. But he saw my uplifted arm & again reverted my gesture with the same. It was like a virtual High Five with a total stranger, but with the same enthusiasm. Fucking awesome. He transferred his divine love into me with that High Five. Simple gestures leaves prints in our hearts so deep. Love and its various forms. He made a rough day bearable and helped me love this big world in our small precious ways.
