Save thy friend

When a friend is depressed
Spot it and get to your feet
Leave everything and focus
Only on your friend
And be with them
Around them
Don’t let them
Feel alone
Be around
And be compassionate
Lend them ears and judge not
And advice not
Give them love
By not advising them
But rather listening to them
Unbiased, with love and concern
Hear feel and see the perspective
That pains
Your friend
Don’t blot it but acknowledge
And see the reason your friend
Is suffering
And put yourself in that place
And feel the same intensely
Then with compassion naturally
Arising hold your friend and
Let them speak and say you
Understand what they are going through
And don’t give lecture or lessons
Say you feel it
Know it
Experience it
And so you want to be
Be there till all is fine
And let them be.
Be.
Never leave
Their side
Ever
For you
You are
The reason they can
Live again.
Again.
This life blissful!

Abyss

The ocean fish

Being of

Vastness

And Depths

And freedom

Dived

In directions

Any

but

Yearned

In the infinite

Space.

Fish

Unprecedented

New, anon

Professing the

infinite

Moved akin

Unhindered

Unbound

Limitless.

Fish obtuse

An else

Unbothered

Vagrant

Heed none

For beings

Facile

Lend

Of shallow

The new

but air

Allured

Fragile

At once

But leaped

the inane

Into

And Abjure

The Vagrant

of

The Limitless.

Stillness

Glowing bright

Rays despite

Cloudy trails

Welcoming light

Singular scar

Twinkling far

Darkened wind

Brightening star

Silent rain

Sight disdain

Drowning life

Wishful lane

Stillness long

Standing strong

Echoing wide

Wordless song

Thank you for

Thank you for
The moments fine

Bright sunshine

Happier time

Soothing chime!

Thank you for

The haloed moon

Calming noon

Unprecedented boon

Singular swoon!

Thank you for

The lightening flight

Peaceful white

Dancing kite

Celestial sight!

Thank you for

The worded wing

Step daunting

Labyrinth solving

Every thing!

Travelling in bus on a rainy night

Blurred lights behind the window seep

Amidst mist foggy calming breeze

Alone in corner quietly lays

Mind behind in happier days

Of spring, and flowers glowing sun

Fading soft slowly one by one

Spilled paints on window canvas make

The lights of City wide awake

Desolate of life the road ahead

Where I go? I know not yet.

Peaceful Sleep

Tune of merriment blowing breeze
Roars crash flashes senses seize

Splashes play joyful jittery sound
Swaying Redwood Pines earthly bound

Soothe suspended shivering night
Quiet loud flickering candle light

Peeps in the wintry freezing cold
Clutch close the blanket one more fold
