"Another walk 1" - Modified and Erased!

This is my first attempt at Erasure poetry, a very different and a unique form, the meaning of which can be found at THIS page.

This piece is for the prompt at DVerse Poets. It is an erasure of another article of mine which can be found here It was not an easy task, that too erasing my own article. But something sensible came out of it which you are going to read below.

Sighing, I got walking about in the road,
shopkeepers wink, always pointing out.

Wow, what an evening!
My blood surging with the winds of the sky.

The sights of a busy evening, honking traffic,
I found myself absorbed
in my own thoughts.

I blinked, looked around and smiled.
Someone was waiting home for my arrival.

This was so random. I was looking up for an assignment in Google when I realized I wanted to make something out of thin air, feel it and yet be meaningful. After 3 minutes of thought and effort, Et Voila! Here it goes:

Amidst all the chaos and confusion within
love thy self that blooms within.
Watch him jump in leaps and bounds
in time, with joy indescribable sans bounds.
Give him some love, give him some seeds,
        his trees will reap plentiful and generous, so will his deeds   
    Grow (around the earth) through love they will, his kith and kin
simply, love thy self that blooms within

This one is for everyone.

“Nowadays, communication has progressed to such a level that every single word is shortened to each individual’s likeable wish. For example, two is written as 2, someone as sum1 and so on.

See boys, how many of you have the habit of writing letters???”

Numb silence and blank expressions replaced the dull sleepy looks on the faces of my fellowmates in the Verbal class.

“In those days, we used to write a lot and that gave us immense satisfaction.”

I looked around. Not many were paying attention.
