LIFEGUARD

Armed with mask and hand glove,
I take upon my formless foe;
Heart filled with courage and love
Wrapped in PPEs* top to toe..

Into the volatile sea of gasping men
Suffocating yenning for breath,
Plunge I to save the drowning when
I, also, could be pulled beneath.

A mission I have forever vowed to do
When a tempest strikes the bark²
Of sailing humanity in need of rescue,
Or light, when blue turns to dark.

An agile lifeguard that swiftly swims,
I hesitate not to take a dive
To save tens or a single life
And, in that, with joy my heart brims!

DELVE O SEEKER

If not for moon, the night is too vast
To be brightened by little stars.
If it were only plankton, then food for
Sharks would be always scarce.

O Rolling Stone! In You is the Whole…
Why craving satiety in outer part,
Putting your cart before your horse,
From field to field you ever dart?

Delve O seeker into Ocean You and bring
The pearls you hoad in the core!
For only shells and pebbles are abounding
In the shallowness of the shore.
