Dream Afresh & Work Around

I sit by a waterfall
Refreshed and elated
By the lemony sweet newness
That comes up to greet me
After water meets stone
And a random spray leaps in joy
With wetness and life
Drenching my exhilarated soul

Then the eyes, they open
To a vision of illusory grandeur
The King is on his throne
He, the lord of nothingness
His empire weighed down and numbed
By the repercussion and the sullenness
Of a dreary existence
And biting bytes of the executive kind


The mind should now shut up and get back to work

sounds like a dream or a thought in the middle o f work:P

surprising how boredom can enhance someone's creativity and give them fodder to write!

And a random spray leaps in joy
With wetness and life
-loved these lines!

@ Manisha

Its the result of day dreaming through a tough-work-day break and running back to the desk to write it down and forgetting most of the original thought and investing fifteen minutes in fresh rethinking.

And boredom has always inspired me :D

Lemony sweet newness is how I, in my weird mind, visualize freshness... I watched too many Lirril ads and drank copious quantities of lemonade in my childhood... In my mind... I flux them together to create and taste freshness... creative liberty...

Now am I making any sense :-(

manisha said...

hahaha...really liril ads??? is that why the water fall has a mention here!!!

As the Mind Meanders said...

Of course... my life is inspired by Liril ads ...

:D

manisha said...

@ Tongue

Slack day??? Anything but that... and this was the result of frustration
:-)

As the Mind Meanders said...

@ Atrisa

As the Mind Meanders said...

@ Shanu

No pretensions... the meandering mind had to vent to get back focus... where else but the blog :-)

As the Mind Meanders said...

@ Meghana

LOL

Oh Yeah... and wasn't it fun... with my tie and without a mask...

I think I understand why Atrisa wants me to be a scuba instructor...

But what crusade... which attack... are we trying to find the holy grail here?? DUH... enlighten.. pleej

pawan said...

Whoa!

"And biting bytes of the executive kind "
This was the best line of the poem!

Anita :) said...

Newness- lemony sweet..
Spray - 'Leaping in joy...
WOWOWOWOW.. each of your brain cells are creative...!! If boredom can create this, what would a poetic mood create?

As the Mind Meanders said...

@ Pawan

As the Mind Meanders said...

Oh the dreary existence!

How the drones and the worker bees could fly away to a land of uninhibited bliss!

Beautiful beautiful, these lines and sad too.

*mind shuts up and then DOWN as it gets back to work :|

blunt edges said...

whenever i read poetry, some song pops up in my mind (that's actually when i lose focus somewhere in between!) ;)

song 4 the post:
I used to rule the world
Seas would rise when I gave the word
Now in the morning I sweep alone
Sweep the streets I used to own
I used to roll the dice
Feel the fear in my enemy's eyes
Listen as the crowd would sing:
"Now the old king is dead! Long live the king!"


long time since i heard it...coldplay here i come!!! :D:D

As the Mind Meanders said...

Arslan said...

Totally reminded me of my months as an intern. Stultifying, mind numbing boredom, for which blogging was the only respite. All my posts during summer were written in office. :)

As the Mind Meanders said...

@ Arslan

Yes chief... I know how it feels...

agent green glass said...
