Birds Seek Shelter

Cloudy grey sky drizzles gently
The five birds are on a flight
In a search for shelter

It was evening for me to go for a little exercise. Drizzling caught me and I was attracted to the flying birds’ chirp in the sky. Therefore, it began with, “birds on a flight”. Upon reaching home, the other surroundings are captured in words.


Clouds turned grey
Compels me to rush out swiftly

A sudden
Drip drop
Caught in the middle
Drip drop
Caught in the drizzling

Whirling mind
Heart beats swiftly
Mind went blank
Blank of anything
Like an erased memory
Like a lost lamb
Following other lamb
Only to wake up
Only to realise
To be in
In the wrong place.

When I observed that the cloud darkened, I rushed out of the house to catch public transport. Before reaching the library, it was drizzling. So I speeded up to the library to return books. But I took the train instead of the bus to meet my friend. In the train, I realised it was the wrong transport.
