Micropoetry: Fair and Simple

Neither more nor less.
Learning, reading at this pace.
Once in a while, rest.

#micropoetry #haiku

After reading twenty four books in 2021, and completing the reading target I had set for myself, I’ve realised that I could skim a lot of time for myself. Considering the long list of things that I (rather we) must do, along with office work, it is a big achievement. I haven’t still surpassed my last-year’s record, where I had read 29 books. But, now that I have some time, I wish to complete one more book. Here’s what I have learnt about myself:

  • Reading a lot and reading and contemplating are two different things.
  • So long as you write, you can give your reading some rest — assuming you have other equally daunting tasks/responsibilities.
  • Take out time to enjoy. Slow down once in a while. Rest. It is important for us to have peace of mind, not pieces of mind.

This micrpoetry is another impromptu creation that happened to me in less than a minute. God knows how, even the syllables are in the order of 5-7-5, placed suitably for a Haiku. Maybe I’ve hit a rhythm. Big word — rhythm. But, that’s a topic for some other time.

Right now, I wish to slow down a little.

Peace. 🙂
