Alienation

Sometimes life fails our embedded assumptions.
Even the coffee in the costliest cup may not be savory.

The eagle, so high and flying with grace,
might be wondering at the dexterity
with which sparrows accomplish shelter building–
in close proximity to humans who eagerly observe and listen to them–
and enjoy some flight that needn’t be measured in terms of highness
that has no definite yardstick.

And the moon, an intrinsic part of folklores
and a symbolic benchmark for exceptional human beauty,
may not be happy amid stars that converse with each other.

And no wonder the world has cornered pleasures of ordinariness
unaware,
people with exceptional talents and stations share in its dream.
