It’s all a mainstream melody

It’s all a mainstream melody
of life and death
a dance of toss and draw
and tail-switch flee.

Yesterday’s free
is today’s catch,
and the one that got away
will tomorrow be caught.

And tomorrow’s escapee
will perish with trapper
in karmic ordainment
by and by.

Palette gratifying ritual
unknown to water
unknown to water resident:
livelihood for some.

Life-death art
is a midstream dance
between now and then
here and there.

A photo-essay
of our transience,
a moment-freeze
of a necessary journey.

[Inspired by the photography of Chandana Wijesinghe]
