Somehow, she's always the one up here.

A thread is spun;
a broken one:
not the way it should have been.
Off-key song;
something's wrong:
not quite the way it had been seen.
Nothing's amiss,
yet something is:
what, exactly - can't put a finger.
Like a dish not ate
or a friend not met,
yet whose taste and thought still linger.
What was not
can't be forgot:
you just can't miss what never was.
An illusion,
or delusion:
how can effect be without cause?

The crack of dawn and the sliver of light:
"Try me", says the sun to the dark, dark night.

Silence shattered by the koel's cry:
"Try me", says the bird to the empty sky.

Happiness breaking through the norms:
"Try me", says life to mundane forms.

A pace pushing through mild-heartedness:
"Try me", says the city of madness.

Nothing ventured means nothing to gain:
"Try me", says the gamble, "try me again."

Change the world

Take a lot of paint to paint a brand new purple dawn.
The world around us needs some changing: like a yellow lawn.
Change the colours of the world, a rosy sea thereby;
throw some pigment up above to make an orange sky.
Fair, dark, yellow, brown: the colour, deep as skin -
Instead let's all be rainbow stripes with polka dots thrown in.
The birds have got the right idea with many a coloured feather.
Oh! Clouds should take on olive hues to make interesting weather.
Rocks, forever, have been known to be just dull and grey.
Let's paint them all like Easter eggs, they'd like that, wouldn't they?
The world is quite a massive place - so many things to change.
It wouldn't be an easy task to do the fullest range.
But here's a start: in daily life, all the things you find -
Look at them deeply and just change them in your mind.
