The Missing Element

A long day is coming to an end,
Consumed by the chores
I look for the missing element,
Facades of black, grey and white
hound the four corners,
I look for an escape
from the madness around.

As I step out to soak in the fresh air,
I absorb the lush green leaves of the Banyan,
try to construe the Cuckoo's calling,
I look for the missing element,
Facades of concrete, honking cars
hound the surroundings,
I look for an escape
from the hullabaloo.

Tick Tock, Tick Tock,
Oh! It was a dream,
I look for the missing element,
A toothless smile appears
I could see it from the corner of my eyes
A smile that eased the pain within,
A smile that erased the facades of dream,
A smile that turned me a new leaf.
