Overburdened

The arms of glasses
fit over ears and tell them
to listen attentively
to what the eyes see…


Now the mask
also reminds them
to continue listening
even if the mouth remains shut…


Ears are overburdened
with music of nature
to connect with hearts…

  1. My two little ears, so much to hear
    That too with care,may far or near
    It has to bear , burden of waves in air
    Never mind dear, the mask we wear
    It’s for our safety , till corona is clear
    Sir , my ears do so much, really your posts are unique and always anew and afresh🤗🌹🌹🌺🌺🌷

    1. Your response poems are always amazing. Thank you so much.

      Ears have to do much work, as they are avenue to the heart. That’s why ear comes within heart, i.e. h(ear)t.

  2. Now, KK, you’ve struck a chord with me! As I grow older my hearing is reduced and I realise that I have been lip-reading for years like everyone else only didn’t realise it. The face mask simply highlights my poor hearing. However, I abide by the restrictions, it is for all of us! 🙏

    1. Sorry to know about this, Ashley. It’s really appreciable that you take such things in right perspective. I have seen some relatives using hearing aids, but lip-reading is something different. Covid has changed our lifestyles.

    ये महामारी ने हमें सिखाया कि प्रकृति को देखो और इंतज़ार करो आवाज़ सुनने का आदत डालो।
    मुँह खोल कर भाषण देना बंद करो !! यही हमारी हालत आजकल 👍🏻🌷हमें उम्मीद रखेंगे कि
    सब ठीक होगा 🙏👏 बहुत बधाइयाँ 🙏🌷
