BIRDS CHART~by Jyotirmaya Thakur

I gaze at dusk in the crimson hues ,
Cluster of birds mesmerizing views ,
How do these birds chart the same course?
Towards the horizon without GPS source.

At times I spot a solitary bird ,
Breaking away from the flock ,
The naughty one showing bravado,
Perhaps a slow flier left behind stock.

As I watch birds fly in aerodynamic pattern ,
Into the oblivion questioning existence,
I am jolted out of my complacence,
I realise bitterly life’s transience.

There is another home waiting for mortals,
Birds carry twigs,food for fledgling morsels,
Somewhere away in an astral form moral ,
We will carry our karma divine incarnation.

I never tire of beholding feather species ,
Dusk retreat to night impels me to think ,
Like arboreal creatures we need to leave ,
Our earthly dwelling with ease and peace.

Dawn and dusk are messages of universe,
In an ephemeral proud presumed permanence,
Our joys and sorrows are just impressions,
Nothing is permanent just perceptions. Jyotirmaya Thakur copyright 7/11/17.
