They Happen

before I could realize.

Been overdue for long,
a sudden twist as it is,

permissions obtained,
sanctions granted,

it is progress
all the way,

I, who had seen,
inertia throughout,

am shocked to see
the movements,

the shock is pleasant
not rude anyway,

all occurring in my
twilight years,

these could be a boon
to my progeny,

I am always out
of the game,

not fortunate to enjoy
the fruits.
