Tranquil

By: Sanjib Mallik

Early morning flight
I look outside my window
White cloud stretched over the world
Like a blanket

Sun rising behind me
Rays falling gently now not as harsh
As a midday Sun

See glimpses of the world
Through tattered holes
Light still flickers for a morning
Yet to come

I do not envy sleepers below
Happy to be in Angel stead
Wishing well to all, for the day to come

The drone around me
The constant hum reminds me
Of power that hurl
This small contraption human born

Few minutes pass
We barely move
 Yet miles  probably pass us by

Few more minutes pass me by
Going forward  where I need to be
Sea of clouds now way below
Up above a clear blue sky

Around me other souls reclined
A few already hard at work while others
Sipping coffee or perhaps reposed

There will be other days and other flights
When things might go awry
But it is not today and I am glad
It is going smooth and fine

Should you find yourself one day
In a flight of your own
Hope your flight is a tranquil one
As you spread your wings and sore

Finally Alive!

By: Sanjib Mallik

Struggled long and hard
Never sure where it led
So many ways things can go
So many options to choose

In the end it is up to you
To put your puzzle in place
What you want to show the world
Where you want to go

You hope to inform
To inspire perhaps
You hope to delight
Or to involve

After months of struggle
Or hours of night
After what would seem like
An interminable flight

You put the final touches
But it is never done
You had fun for sure
Now the show has begun

Your work is done for now
It is now alive
Others will come and put their hand
Moving things along
