The Calendar

Numbers confined in the calendar squares

Nervous stare to identify the nature of days

More than today’s concerns, eyes shift between yesterday and tomorrow

Measuring the effectiveness of present in their comparison

Eager eyes though assume tomorrow would be better

Such is the belief of that empty gaze and exhaustive calculations

Some days are special and marked in bold

Inadvertently, the discrimination between days are emphasized

In anticipations, the future is adorned in imaginations

‘What’s the agenda?’, asks the calendar in a ridiculing tone

Between the clock and the calendar, days are spent frantically

That illusionary bridge and the concepts keep life busy

Wish one could tease the numbers and manipulate further

Eternity laughs at the hectic calendar and myriad interpretations

So many questions just do not stick to the numbers
