Yet another day

It is 3 am.

I am still awake.

I am worried.

I am worried for my 150 friends.

I am worried for the homeless,

even open sky is no longer their roof.

I am worried for the migrants

who are still on their way home.

I am worried for the jalebiwalas.

I am worried for the rickshawalas.

I am worried for the schoolwalas;

offline is their lifeline.

I am worried for the gods;

only inner doors are open.

I am worried for the elephant's mother.

I am worried for the kittens, just born at our backyard.

I am worried for Floyds, not pink, but black.

It is 5 am.

Birds are chirping, bees are humming.

Sunflowers are opening their petals.

I wake up, not alone, with many.

We wear red-tinted glasses

to see the morning sun.
