In The Stillness Of This Moment

in the stillness of this moment
i see a spider on the wall
telling me how often it has
crawled on them all

in the stillness of this moment
i hear a fan whizzing by
narrating the happy times
it has been whizzing by

in the stillness of this moment
i hear a song playing in my head
just for me and noone else
and for that lovely loveliness

in the stillness of the moment
everything stands still
to soak and suck as much as i can
from this life and its drill

A Sweet Deception

Yesterday, a Father was unable to witness his 8 yr old son perform various activities at the school's annual sports day. He was held at work. He felt bad. He also realized that if the son comes to know that his Daddy couldn’t make it, the little boy will be heartbroken.

So, he made a smart plan.

He managed to reach the son’s school just before the day was coming to a close. He intermingled with the crowd, met his wife and updated himself about the little boy’s antics. Later, he met the son and appreciated the little boy’s efforts.

Now, both of them are happy. And the little boy will perhaps always think that his Daddy was with him that day. Some deceptions can be sweet!
