Every once in a while ...

Every once in a while,
stall the thoughts, abandon the speculation
try to shut off the mental processes
disengage the senses, clear up the space

Every once in a while,
block out the disturbances, restrain the activities
take a step back from the mess of life
slow down the breaths, slow the hectic pace

Every once in a while,
ungarble the tangled wishes, tear up the lists
halt the schemes abound in contradiction
pack up the cards, throw away the futile ace

Every once in a while ....

after a long time, I was in the perfect mood to jot down something. The lines, the words came in a flurry and the whole thing was written in 5 minutes, I guess. Even a splitting headache has its plus points !! Btw, the observant might notice why it isn't really possible to have more than three stanzas for this poem :P.

@ rama:

Dont worry the substitute psychiatrist (dont u dare laugh :P ) is here to interpret ur thought-provoking poem:

1st stanza interpretation:
finally u decided to sweep your room and make ot clean

2nd stanza:
slow down slow down you have got all day tp clean the room ... dont do a hasty and hence inefficient job

3rd stanza:
You are not satified with the neatness so threw the garbage/paper/cards back on the floor again.

good boy rama decides to re start cleaning his room again 'coz he did a bad job :D

I wanted to write a comment congratulating Rama for such a sensitive poem, but then I read Baba's comment :O. Just what exactly do you eat, Baba? Or smoke?

@ aniket:
Shucks ! No was a joke :)

(u see ol' chap! That is a true blue Obelix style comment ;)

@ rama:

i'd love to post some really witty, sarcastic, double-entendred bit of praise here but none springs to mind

my mind infact is so devoid of thought that it's as empty as the lunar landscape

at this point, i thought this comment would grow into something more, a little bit of prose and not a bore. however, i sense me shooting myself proverbially in the foot if i continue typing

you know when you're vella when you goto someone's blog, scroll down to the end of the comments and realize that you already read and commented here.
