Encounters With Reality


Travel by buses travel by trains
Travel to places far and near
to attend events of near and dear
Functions bringing people together
a chance to meet liked and disliked
Buried blushes rushing to life
as long lost contacts surface without strife
Faded memoirs feasting the thoughts
Silence speaking out many a hearts
Shocks and surprise trouncing the mind
As past and present pounce on each other
glee and gloom bounce to the fore
In knowing facts and status
of the people I moved with
Faces once that were glowing young
Posing now old and worn out
Amusement on both the sides
In accepting each other’s appearance
Mind as always faulting the times
In digesting the nuts of truth and reality
Yet Times moves on smiling all its way!
