A ripple of consciousness !

A tribute to all the small insignificant things in life that bring joy ! 

Swinging in the rhythm of life
A burning desire in the prison of lantern resembling life.
The chirping of birds returning their nests
A dried leaf floating in the random wind
without knowing its destiny or purpose
The light fragrance of the white jasmine 
So pure, so serene & happening n so effortlessly  
A withering petal, half brown & half pink
A log floating in the stream, going with the water
Seems like my destiny freely floating in the waves of life
The flickering of street light outside my window
the thunder & then the silence before the storm
the reminiscence of childhood
a feeling of childhood joy rescued from oblivion
never ending wait for the sheer bliss of living
waiting for the return of shot from the catapult of life
a careless walk in beige dried grass
an unwilling attempt to embrace the destiny
to live the life the way it comes      
has life lost its sheen ?
a green blade of grass shining in the sun,
a small bean trying putting its head out & get the first glimpse of the world.
A millipede with its numerous legs, crossing the street. 
An extinct sparrow returned with its chirp to wake me up.
Reminding me of the beautiful world out there
Apart from being just plugged into the wall
Taking a break from the normal windows desktop of landscape
and resting my eyes on the actual one from outside my window.
bringing a great sense of belonging with the nature deep within.
quintessence of living is long forgotten luxury  
an effortless attempt to understand the intangible universe
the line of ants passing by, with tiny bits of food in their mouth
storing for the harsh winter.  
a snail making up slowly, unaware of its speed
escaping into its shell, sensing any danger, pretending to be safe inside.  
a sea shell lying on the shore, a twisted spiral
A million sparkles reflected on ocean water by setting sun
A tendril hoping to coil around the stem.
A mushroom waiting to stretch itself from the moist log.
A honey bee, working hard as usual visiting various flowers,
Collecting honey from those millions of flowers,
Unaware of the probability of that it may be stolen.
Strange is the evolution which has imparted intelligence
the necessity of hexagonal honey comb  
Admist all these bizarre thoughts
A desperate wait for someone special never ends,
Wishing the centrifugal force of my desire be stronger
than the centripetal force of obligation
For once I would like to take a daring tangential leap
Breaking the circling around along the path set by life’s destiny
For once gathering courage to take a leap of faith,
to be free form regret of not attempting even once.
As a feeble photon travelling from a millions of light years
from unknown abyss of space & time hits the eye
mind rejoices in the realization that we are insignificant as a particle of dust.
A destiny reluctant to reveal more than one page at once.
A falling star seen across the sky
I don’t know what to wish for
I only wish to convey gratitude to the creator, sustainer & destroyer.
Stretched hands feeling the ocean breeze
Seemingly flying in the bliss of sight of horizon of water & sky
Glancing at the cloud passing by,
feeling the tender kiss of first rain drops on the cheek
The cold waves touching the feet
like arms of the sea trying to embrace me in it’s abode
as I let go off the notion of reality, the modern world around me
I feel as light as rain, as white as snow
To connect with the nature in its true form,
& rejoice in the very existence & wonderment about oneself
For I am the one of the nature’s most beautiful creations
I am just a ripple of consciousness of someone somewhere 
in the mysterious fabric of space & time

PS: This is not exactly a poem, or may be a poem in its nascent stage, raw, thought to post it same way, no refinement! just a collection of raw abstract bizarre thoughts ran across my mind when looked through my window !
