to turn keys
(painted with generous coats of rust,
pinned down by bundles of ignorance,
forgotten by people looking only at mirrors)
The keys shall
a dawn dipped zephyr
(albeit, through the peephole of a heavy smog dam)
The zephyr intersperses drops of sun through the populace
and flows like a balm of neem blended with turmeric,
(even if it strolls along like a mystic on holiday,
then picking up
as it fancies)
it is rumored to annihilate plastics in its wake.
Seeds shall soon be curious enough,
to poke their little shoots out,
and be the headwaters of forests.
Forests shall spread like green fire
to re-envelope this earth in its vitality
heralding in the reign of ‘a just enough life’.
