A bir­th­day song

A bir­th­day song
on your bir­th­day the birds sing
a dis­tinc­tive tune, more lightly
also slightly profounder

a bir­th­day not a Facebook event
some stuffs are more serious
less frivolous

a silent mor­ning in the city
I con­tem­plate the ocean
its con­ce­a­led nature

its mag­ni­fi­cent detachment
splen­did separation
con­nec­ting counterparts

epi­so­des of solem­nity and change
a per­pe­tual pas­sing of seasons
chan­ges what is left

Antony Oomen
