Reaction & Response


In a world too busy to care,

Too hurried and impatient

All must happen fast

Every thing must move quickly

Speed is a part of life

And life is lived on the fast lanes

However hurried reaction

Is considered unwise

Compared to the calmness of response.

Yet the truth is …

Between the active and passive

Exists a space to balance

Between reaction to response

Exists a pause for reflection

With reference to the choice of voice

Both have significance of their own

In the right situations & context

That can make all the difference.

  1. An electric life and technicolor dreams! There is a beauty that exists in the middle ground. What a beautiful poem to remind us of this fact.

  2. So well said. A think layer of space is there in the reaction and response and one needs to halt and evaluate things. Loved the way to expressed.

    • I liked the way you mention
      of the light and dark coloring , for it connects to the appearance of the contrasts.
      Yes the vividity value proposition, the propensity of intensity all is interrelated to the witnessing of the spaces in the pauses… For if we simply jump from moment to next we are just existing not living. This understanding is vital for life and living.
