Sky and Earth  

Posted by Divya A L in

One is a wild blue yonder,
Another is a big blue marble...
Each of you represent a gender
Former the male, latter the female...


WBY - the often flawless blue sky,
Sitting on top, safe and agile...
BBM - the uneven earth,
Always under risk, every single mile...



The sky's mood changes quickly with time...
It smiles, it cries whenever it desires...
The earth more stable that way...
Yet reacts and is sensitive to external forces....



If sky can cause rains...
Earth absorbs them to create oceans...
If sky can speak out thunders...
The earth can voice explosions...



Taken a distant view of you both,
You gradually taper into one...
But as one progresses along that path...
One realizes who is which one....



Life after marriage is probably like this...
When two different persons come together
They assume they are in line
In reality, they are parallel and far from each other....



When nature by itself operates in this manner...
We probably are expected not to break the rule..
For, the eco system is in balance...
May be due to this thumb rule! ;)
