Barely there

Cloistered inside a cage,

I look out of my window,

Where the world lives every second,

Ants continue the march replenishing their granary,

A teeny hatchling calls out trying to know ways of the world,

Hanging like a worn out leaf off a barely alive vine,

I try to make sense of all that’s already been here,

Between the time sky’s reels changes from pale blue to orangish and finally pinkish purple,

I crave for emotions to feel alive,

Where the world lives every second,

I look out of my window,

Cloistered inside a cage.
