Let The Children Play

Let The Children Play

I try
To move on
Distract myself
With life

Avoid you
With sleep
Listen to music
Not yours
Or any
I shared
With you

I can’t wear
My anklet

We don’t speak
Not anymore

I know you
Are thinking of me
As you know
I am too
Of you

It has never been
This good before

We have to be
Very strong
And move on

Especially when
I feel you
You must
Feel me too

Let the children play on
Let them be

Poetics describes a whole range of engagements with life that are storied, reflective and filled with imagination and inspiration, as opposed to analysis in the strict sense. When science rules, the magic fades. When thinking ascends the throne, the soul may atrophy. Yet poetics is not irrational – it is a take which reaches into a different aspect of our humanity – one where we can celebrate that which moves us, not dwell on what limits us. Expect surprises. One or many may lead. None or a few may follow and then decide to take the lead. This is a fluidity to break the mould of rigidity. Join us on this journey. Let us hold hands boldly and join voices transformatively. Prabha will be leading us. If you feel inclined, feel free to join us.
