Quiet Disquiet...

The world is sleeping

under the covers of a silent night.

The stars are peeping

from the recesses of a languid sky,

musing about the unusual calm of an

else boisterous planet.

The night air ridden of its usual clamor, seems to sing a silent eulogy

to all those lost lives.

While,

we humans try to maintain

a facade of calm

masking our ruffled insides,

as we catch on to the air of edginess surrounding us.

Apart from the gentle rustle of the trees and the occasional bark of a dog,

even the cacophony of the birds and insects has died down,

as every living thing is hushed.

They lie in a drugged slumber.

Along with sun up, rises the anticipation of yet another day,

as we feverishly repeat

the actions of the previous day,

with an undercurrent of

self righteousness.

Comical!

This abides day after day.

Amen.
