Squeezed.

Clock keeps ticking on,
squeezing in many flavors,
hungry to taste life.


***************************************** 

Moving to new place,
squeezing in memories, gifts-
eyes and bags well up.
*****************************************
Not an inch remains,
 buses, trains and roads crammed up-
rush hour traffic woes.

*****************************************
 Warmth, support, love, care;
silence speaks a thousand words-
gentle squeeze of hands.
*****************************************

  1. The first and last are my favorites. First so clever and well written. Warm fuzzy feelings from the last.

    1. It is Bangalore traffic, but then these kind of scenes are very common in most Indian cities...Oh yes packing is a major task Nanka, esp when you live in a place for a long time and it is time to move on...
