dad, he calls me an old workholic weasel...
by the doc
Age Group: Adult
that sounds really enjoyable
imagine with what effort the little animal
or for that matter any creature...
like the beaver
with teeth, or like the o blue-winged wood-pecker
an entire life time....?
dentists would call it 'attrition'
teeth gradually losing their sharpness
does one knife last a lifetime?
if you use it day-after-day..
you don't use it, it rusts, u use it.. it demands maintenance
thanks you for not letting it rust
also explains to you, that the knife, is a cutting one
but, there are also lots of other knives...
designer ones, paper-weight ones, lighter ones
by just calling you names
you feel you have been affected so seriously...?
whats wrong with a little bit of worthwhile sarcasm
if it makes you
wonder and ponder....
ever met or known anyone
experienced an iota of joy?
this poet-of-Indian-origin known and loved as a good read
obituaries make one sad or covetous?
that if 'acceptance of facts is emotional maturity'
as saints advise, and if times are hard
and moments you cherish are rare
they become like precious memories
imagine then, that those memories
a special crafts person took
and modified them for you into jewels..
like things you would not like to share so often
ever sit alone with a family album of photographs..
they still hold you - in that special way
irrespective of technological brilliance in video recordings..
some pains are such
got as rarely
and as seldom
which atleast acknowledge that there was life
