those were the days
he lived in the city
played musical chair in his office
juggled between work and daily shadow boxing
he had been taken for a ride
he sensed fatigue, rather frequently
while the days were still sunny
& before he became the soup of the day
he realized that his women, song & wine life style
was simply not the way
he then escaped from his towering office
drove, very slowly
to return back to nature
by the sea
he submits & sips more tea
now tastes sweeter than wine you see
new lease if life, he starts
he looks at himself like flower buds flower buds
no more pride
like flower buds,
he takes of on new flights
in search of excellence
subscribes to endurance tests
& manages fitness programs
with new levels of tolerance
hopefully, his new eyesight
will allow him
to scale to new heights
'tis pulling my legs during high tides!
by stepping closer to nature
he doesn't want to be disturbed
he is really out of touch
he wonders about silly things like:
the frog or his sports car
who is faster?
while having lunch
he amuses himself
by having a conversation with fellow creatures
to keep in touch
even listening to the frog croaking
in the still darkness, is a gift from nature
great minds think alike?
he plunges into the deep blue sea
"can you recognise me?", he murmurs
he, the intruder
explores & pries
evesdrops & listen to sweet nothings
like "can you see me?"
& "can I see you?"
from the courting turtles
honestly, he should have known better
three is a crowd, he's really an outsider
he's out of focus!, I wonder?
or perhaps, he has found a niche?
