When did I pause last 🤔

Paused to watch the squirrel

Nibble on the fruits

Jumping through the twigs

Singing out some rhyme …,,

Paused to check on birds?

How many of them flock

What all do they do through the day

And how do they talk …..

Paused to sit and watch

How many buds bloom each day

How many new seeds spring up

How the trailers climb…..

Paused to measure the path of sun

Dawn to over the dusk

Crimson to yellow to chrome to dark

Through clear skies or the clouds …..

Paused to just live breathless hours

Keeping the broom aside

Worrying not for the ticking clock

Or pile of work that smiles…..

Just when the pause was forgotten

Just when the life got mundane

Just when the concerns were a framed posting

Just when the life seemed a game

Someone pushed the pause button

Rolling all shutters down

And somewhere between the endless work

Stillness creeps by my side

I think and think not

I work and work not

I pray and pray not

I smile and smile not

It’s just the onset of the pause

That comes teaching

And introspection rings

“There’s little we can do”

It brings learning

This shall end as well

And the rush hour will come

Will I then miss

This meditative pause?

Will I remember

With learnt effect

Will I care as much

The cause and the rest?

Or the reset mode

Will clear the slate again

And kill the humane stir

Weighing the loss and gain?

A part of me shall stay

Lost in this for long

And though I love

Yet love not this pause !

Pause
