Silent Reflections

A thirst that’s unquenchable 

Busy throwing rocks at the river

Hoping to gulp some of the sweetness

Or, disturb its tranquillity

With broken pieces of burden

Jealous of the playful fishes

Lustrous souls dive eagerly

To unknown depths of joy

Mocking at our fear

Averse to universe’s happiness

Not willingly surrendering to life

Trickles down at intervals

Not essentially to rejuvenate

Only to soothe thirsty heart

The eternal river of life

Silently reflects dry reality
