Changing Viewpoint!


This was a view from my window

bustling life, honking cars, jostling crowds.

It narrated tales of people on the move,

and I loathed that cacophony.


A prisoner, within the walls of my home

I look at the eerie stillness of the deserted street.

The heart yearns to listen to sounds of hustle bustle

only to be greeted by the siren of the ambulance.


I pray that the new dawn is a harbinger of hope

bringing with it the gift of healing.

Life returns with its busyness

and this time,

 I would welcome the cacophony!

  1. How right you are Radhika. There was a time when people were fed up with the noise and hectic pace of life. And now most of them want it back. Thanks for joining in

  2. The feelings attached to the words is echoing inside me. So want to be a part of the hustle now, turn on the Activa and be a part of the honking cars. Miss that rage now.
    Wonderfully expressed the inner voice.

  3. What once was is so dearly missed! Nostalgia is always captivating but when it comes at the helm of an unfortunate ‘today’, it’s painfully heartbreaking. All I wish and pray is for those ambulance sirens to stop…Very beautifully expressed.
