Life is known to throw quite a few bouncers at us. The world of technology is no different. If you’ve worked at a start-up or been part of a dream team, you would know the joy of finding your tribe and the pain of having to let go.
Presenting life and the world of tech in poetry.
Winds of change
Once there was a birdie thriving in a flowering nest, It flocked with its crew with grit, passion and zest. They tended to the flowers nurtured them with care, And built deep roots with wings, feet all bare. The nest blossomed with a fellowship unheard, Soon more birdies flocked Doves, Buntings, and Hummingbird. The season changed colour scorching sun came out, Birdies buckled their wings for fear of a drought. Beavers came to the rescue but shortly they were gone, Eagles looked upon them from the heights of Hyperion. Turtles started digging a canal to the nest, Birdies kept enduring in hope for the best. Flowers began to shrivel, grass followed next. Birdies gazed upon helplessly, their once flourishing nest. Buried under the hay they lay their treasured prize, And went separate way until weather turned wise. A few perched to rest on the trees nearby, Others found abode in the Isle close by. Birdie scanned the woodland to figure its next course, It had learnt to understand Universe’s guiding force. With pearls around their fins the fish swam to the shore, ‘You can swim with us Birdie into the vast open reservoir’. ‘To endorse your heart, O fish is my fervent wish, But my feathers will be in vain in your backwater terrain’. Birdie gazed at the sky and then at its wings, Its muscles had developed to give it the springs. It flapped them once and then once more, The dust flew off like doubts out the door. Birdie soared into the sky and reached above the trees, It could see the horizon now with much ease. The Sun shone in the east mountains sprawled to the west, Which way should it go? Birdie silently assessed. The wind was favourable, the feeling grew, Birdie knew it would find its next belonging crew.
