City life: Karachi Time Lapse

http://vimeo.com/69847157

This is a very amazing video! I don’t have much words to appreciate the skills of this person, who took over 19,000 photographs to compile this time lapse video! I am lovin’ it! And I hope you would too. 🙂

I wanted to add a poem on “CITY LIFE” along with this post, but could not find any exactly appropriate for this video. So I made one on my own! This too, like other poems is an on-spot poetry and has been made without a second-read. Some rhymes may not fit, some verses may look stupid. But I kept on watching and listening, and below are the words that came!

Birds will chirp,

Skies will follow.

Darkness will fade.

There always will be a tomorrow.

.

People will get out,

Early for their works.

Some will look professional,

Some with annoying quirks.

.

Every person gets busy,

As soon as the sun rises,

Working hard to earn living,

Their dedication emphasizes.

.

Cooks and butlers,

Hair dressers and butchers.

All set to work,

Officers and jurers.

.

Reading his newspaper,

Somewhere a crazy man lays.

On sand he sits,

With sand he plays!

.

Porters waiting earnestly,

For the train to arrive!

So that they carry your luggages,

And for their earn do they strive!

.

People come and people leave.

On busy roads, in my busy city!

Cars rush by and buses run too,

Making life seem so pretty!

.

These tall tall buildings,

These offices and banks,

These houses and markets,

Some covered with planks!

.

The day never stops,

The activities seem never-ending!

They will rush hither thither!

Completing chores that were pending!

.

The citizenry will enjoy,

Their time at the beach!

Playing and chattering,

The waves won’t breach!

.

The time won’t stop,

As sunlight will fade!

Return to your houses,

Before increases the shade!

.

Soon it will be night!

The sun will lower,

And disappear in minutes!

It won’t get any slower.

.

People will go to their prayers,

At the churches and to the masjids,

Some to the famous shrines,

And nobody will forbid!

.

The roads will soon be empty!

As people will return at prime.

And the city will once again be lighted!

With laughters and artificial sparks this time!

.

But nothing will stop!

As night will never come.

In this city of lights!

And you will succumb!

.

The moon will peep slowly,

To check if they are waiting!

And they are all very busy,

But oh how fascinating!

.

Somewhere a man begs,

Somewhere a woman sleeps.

Somewhere darkness prevails,

Someone silently weeps!

    Nice poetry 😉
    “Reading his newspaper,

    VERY clever indeed, and clearly a patient undertaking.

    Loved the birds in the beginning – little black splatches.

    Wow, time is unstoppable.
