They document history in pages story,
In artifacts and aging monuments,
In poetry of doom and glory.
Poetry is solidarity in comments
Feeding the immortal human soul.
Solace in troubled times, Wonder
How’ll they document this end whole,
Free-verse or in rhyme yonder?

  5. 5. Online @muses_saga T/W- Existential Crisis They document history in pages story, In artifacts and aging monuments, In poetry of doom and glory. Poetry is solidarity in comments Feeding the immortal human soul. Solace in troubled times, Wonder How’ll they document this end whole, Free-verse or in rhyme yonder? Perhaps it’ll document online, Like our lives. The remnants of history fine, Caught within data-bytes. And so, five poets came online, To show their experience of this quarantine, live. On the twentieth day of the lockdown, Five poets opened their minds, And began to wonder what history would mine At the end of this line. “Online Zoom Classes,” said one.
  6. 6. “It’s a new phenomenon,” agreed another. “Waking up at seven or eight, The whole class comes together, Slowly over bad network, We learn the history of life, And watch the dissection of a feather.” “I suppose online therapy is fine,” added another, “We all need it in these troubled times.” “Online therapy?” “Oh yes. On WhatsApp video are shared the solutions to grief and to life, Medicines are offered online, As well as many ears to listen over call, As we all social-distance.” “Oh yes, no one can conquer distance in this time.” “Yet teachers do it, give us a sense of normal, When they conduct classes over Zoom or Skype, Everyone complains of the mental toll That exams seek, yet no one applauds their tenacity.” On the twentieth day of the lockdown, Five opened their minds, And began to wonder what history would mine At the end of this line. “I learnt things online,” added another. “For one I experienced love and cooking through a screen, When my mother sent me a picture of Thai Curry,
  7. 7. She had learnt from a YouTube channel, Yet seeing it made me feel like I was home, instead of all alone.” “Meals that fill your heart Include desserts like tart Some spicy, crunchy food And a film to set to mood And now the feasting could start. To cook it by yourself is neat Some easy recipes to eat Include butter and bread With chicken on a lettuce bed And toasted on medium heat. Some fruits would be nice And some coke with some ice With a bag of salted chips And some fries with a crisp And perhaps some fried rice." On the twentieth day of the lockdown, Five opened their minds, And began to wonder what history would mine At the end of this line. "I met my best friend across cities again, Seeing her hale and hearty was a relief, In this time of pandemic.
  8. 8. Hearing of people stuck away from home, Dying of death and disease, A lack of utilities I snuggle closer to my Mother. Glad to be safe and sheltered, With food on my plate And family by my side." I still struggle through the quarantine- As every plan seems to fall apart, As every fight turns into a war, I remind myself of those Stuck away from home, All alone, And wonder how would I miss this then- The security of home, The privileges found online, As wars chant the name of Gods, And people in hospitals suffered, Out of necessity the world shut down, Further away from loved ones ourselves we found, I thank my stars, For hearth and health so fine, During this quarantine. When doctors and labourers fought a war To save lives, I stayed safe indoors and read the news online, My only contribution during this time.”
  9. 9. On the twentieth day of the lockdown, Five opened their minds, And began to wonder what history would mine At the end of this line. “I read a few new books online,” said the first, “Feeding the marrows of my mind.” Pulled old books that had gathered dust, Renewed interest in Vine and vinyl I could find.” “Taking care of yourself is a must, And, to your close ones, be kind. Inside all of our crusts, Resides the same organs lined.” On the twentieth day of the lockdown, Five opened their minds, And began to wonder what history would mine At the end of this line. “I made love through a screen,” added another. “To myself and another, Treating my skin to some care, A glow-up for my face and hair.” "Welcome back to my channel", The most heard phrase, Sometimes giving joy, Sometimes providing hope, Sometimes just passing time. You start with basic skincare, Then go on extra pampering,
  10. 10. End with the dream of a radiating, Glowing skin. Hope that your skin and existence, Are going to get sunlight to bloom, Prosper and shine.” On the twentieth day of the lockdown, Five opened their minds, And began to wonder what history would mine At the end of this line. “I caught up on some series, Netflix and solo-chill!” “Are you really in "Netflix and chill?” Or you, just trying to escape? Escape from reality? Escape the mundane? Escape loneliness? Or escape the everlasting question of human existence? Or do you need a reminder how to laugh, love and live? Are you really doing "Netflix and chill?” On the twentieth day of the lockdown, Five opened their minds, And began to wonder what history would mine At the end of this line. As one after another the doors were locked up, stepping out into the open became a life threat,
  11. 11. I asked myself- Staying indoors will keep me safe. But will it keep me alive? The chirping of the sparrows, barking of the street dogs replied- we have asked that question for years while you all were out here mutilating Home! I picked up the dark device that kept us away from Nature for so long. The Newsflash showed "Delhi's air cleanest in a decade". And after that, it continued... Global warming, climate change, ocean plastic, animal torture, species extinction, 5G, and all other monsters; Wikipedia, articles, blogs, documentaries, celebrity activists, e-books and all other mediums: Locked in my own room with a tiny electronic, I visited the whole planet! I came closer to my mother, Earth, understood her pain and pledged to make a change! Ironic, how virtualization brought about the most crucial, realistic realization! “And we all created poetry…” “That’s how we made it through, This quarantine.”
  12. 12. Once Once upon a time, In a land far far away, Was how they all began. Once upon a time… A knight helped fight demons, All hours of the day and night, To tales of such heroic women, I closed mine eyes. Once upon a time… A prince slew a dragon’s price, A princess became a scholar bride To save the love in their life, To their wedding bells’ chime, I closed mine eyes.
  13. 13. Once upon a time… A hero learned a lesson new, Something revealed to few, Lessons- these tales shaped me. Once upon a time, A dragon slept on a pile, With that treasure, I spent my while. Once upon a time, A prince learned and grew, A new age ushered in, A scribe caught in the net of a seer, Ended decades of tyranny, Courage bowing to no will divine, Free will a champion’s pioneer- After their words, I started my story.
  14. 14. Promised I did to fan curiosity. Dragons speak, in legends of old, Through time and space, when stories are told Once upon a time, A woman defied a beast, Shoved away unloving men of whom she had no need, To her story, I paid heed. Once upon a time, True love was formed, Trials were won, truth was known, Personality of love, did I learn. Once upon a time, Soul-mates chose to be siblings, Showing love came in a million ways, A million a dime,
  15. 15. Re-forging fate’s strings, To love myself, they taught me. Once upon a time When Reality grasped the child in a chokehold, They reached out their hand Eyes closed as the fingers enclosed around the knob To the Magic Trapdoor To the tales and stories, I closed mine eyes. Once upon a time, A mistake was made, Penance was paid, knowledge Of forgiveness in love, I gained. Once upon a time, Sat around tables went up a cry,
  16. 16. Hear Ye, Hear Ye! A tale to unfold A story to be told The day has ended We have tales to tell, Tales that lasted well into the night. Once upon a time, A ruler ruled in guise, The most benevolent and loved Leader of all time, Despite some naming their birth a crime Upon their victory’s highs, I vowed, to form mine. Wyverns are separate, dragons they aren't, Like men are not monkeys and mountains are not towers.
  17. 17. Once upon a time, Virtues and vices came together, In growth year by year, decade by decade, Like fine wine humans tend to age, To their tales, eyes I closed mine. Like man, do beliefs morph and become Different from what they had strived to preserve. Once upon a time, A change of perspective Brought forward questions unsettling, Learning to see the world from several eyes Learning to understand survival and being nice, I closed mine eyes. Once upon a time, The darkness of the night-
  18. 18. Does not always scare her. But the dull ache in her heart often tingles still. While looking for a remedy, What will she find in the Magic Shop? To adventures inside, I closed mine eyes. Once upon a time, Pain was as beauty disguised- Even as beauty could be found in the same things Without pain being a part of it. To the world’s cruelty, and learning to stand up to it, I fell asleep. Once upon a time, A trial was held for a king, Madness and tyranny were his reign,
  19. 19. A tale that sent shivers with me to bed. Once upon a time, A queen rejected every king, Decided alone wasn’t lonely, Creating democracy from regime, Progress nestled under her wing In ways apart from society. Once upon a time, I learnt of a magician That built worlds with ink, Learning to flow from it I did. Once upon a time, A write ventured- Into spaces not exactly meant for her To sisterhood and magic
  20. 20. In spaces that between time and space exist I closed mine eyes. In modern times, where do gods be? In monasteries or getting a cup of coffee? Once upon a time, In a land far far away, Where they all began, Goblins and dragons and witches and hime, Honorable thieves ran circles around monarchs fey, Kingdoms fell and rose again, Like it happened every Tuesday, Once upon a time, In a land far far away. Once upon a time, In a land far far away,
  21. 21. Lay lessons my grandparent taught me, Wrapped in delightful stories paradigm That shaped me, held me in sway, Slowly like pottery, now I see, The truth nestled in me “Once upon a time, In a land far far away…”
