Life Must Go On


When the sky sometimes 

turns cloudish, a bit dull, 

the green below

gets greyish, darker.

The nature suddenly

looks somber and glum.

But so what? 

The sun, visible or invisible,

keeps moving in its trajectory.

The day doesn’t

pause a moment 

and nor does the life. 

Green or grey or even dark, 

the life must go on! 

Yes, if at all it needs a spark, motivation,

it’s aplenty there,

on the mirror face

of the lake water.
