Side by side in the mirror

Side by side in the mirror.

We found us
side by side in the mirror.
One he
who is calm and quiet
with deep eyes
and lesser age.
One me, aged
with somewhat broken
look.
One he who looks
like nourished
with optimum care;
one me who looks
like carelessly grown
and now wilting.
There are few more
in the mirror wide
as usual
in most of the modern
haircut salons.
One who cuts my hair
and shaves
one other who puts
expensive facials
on his face, slowly.
Another two too
are waiting to receive call
for the next service
after dyeing.
One sitting
Other wandering.
Oh! I forgot to tell you
one more came
to brush his hair,
wearing a jacket black
with a guitar on his back
in between.
I am careful
it does not look unfair
that I looked at him
examining.
His appearance looks
so perfect of his age!
He is so simply but
gracefully dressed!
Also wearing
an expensive wrist watch
very uncommon to these days
but it suits his appearance.
An emerald on his finger
adding elegance.
He is here with us
but it seems
he is not here.
He showed no interest in
what we other so far
talked within ourselves.
He is alone and unique
in this salon.
We all other
looked like average
side by side in the mirror.

The Way Last

The Way Last.

This is not bad either.
Leave it to time.
Let things do happen
as they should, in time.
Let me wait, wait and wait.

Let me hope
what comes to my hand
in the end is all gold.
Let this be the way last
which I must try.

Let me apprehend you laugh
but let me also ignore
your laughter.
This is just not your time yet
to follow me or to accept.
