Sleepless nights-2

Sleepless nights

It’s  night, the nest waits for its bird , at dawn, went out
Even  close friends unaware of his whereabouts.
The traffic  on the highway peaks  and drops   finally
The nest  keeps on wondering where could  its bird be?
Has he got hooked up with a cutie on the way
And decided to spend the night , from home, away
The midnight owl hoots,  the nest heaves out  a  sigh
Has one of his near ones fallen sick or even die
The  neighbour’s  cow bellows..   for water or for feed?
Too weak to fly ?  To get food,  he didn’t  succeed?
The cock is crowing, but where has the bird gone
Is he caught up with work  to be finished  before dawn
Finally the sun dawned with the world  moving faster
When  the nest heard the feeble twitter of its master
Telling that he had sat up the night on  a tree , distraught,
Stayed away from the nest, so muddled with stray thoughts
What is this bird, if  not the sought- after- sleep indeed?
Is not the  nest  the eye that at night  for sleep pleads?
